Which part of the calculation did time out? Was it the dftb+ calculation
with the high number of k-points (which I assume) or the dp_dos script?
If it is the former, you can restart it like any other calculation: You
provide the charges.bin file written by the previous run in the current
folder and set the ReadInitialCharges = Yes in the Hamiltonian / DFTB
block. Then the SCC-cycle would continue with the charges from the end
of the previous run.
