Can't save file after deleting one model

I started with one model, then created a second and afterwards deleted the first one completely. Now I am unable to save the file and I also can't run any study. I think there are some variables left from the first model I deleted. Here is the error message when I try to save the file:

The object 'Type: Geometry
Tag: geom1
Dimension: 2
Current child: r3 is not contained in a resource.


In general, how can I access variables and delete them?

Hi

once a model file gets corrupt, it's often difficult t repair.
"My way" 19 is to leave it open, start a new session and rebuild the model from scratch, using the possibility to "cut&paste" at least the most complex formulas from the corrupt one to the new one.

Sometimes you might recover if you do thefollowing 2):
Edit delete all mesh, edit delete all solution, File reset history, then save

last resor 3)t, clean up the Study nodes (delete them all) then save and reopen

But most of the time I use 1), far safer ;)

THese situations happend rather often, for me, back in 4.0 times, really very seldom now, in the latest versions (4.3a)

Good luck
