At the beginning of every time step CO5BOLD checks in the working directory

The run of the simulation itself is not modified. This feature
might be useful for debugging purposes.
If a run was successful i.e. it was completed because one of the
regular termination conditions was fulfilled (e.g. the requested number
of time steps was performed) the exit status file
rhd.done is produced.
Currently, it contains the date and time of its generation.
The existence of this file can be checked within a script to determine
if the simulation was successful (and should be continued).
