hack of copying the partial cert from one directory
to another, from time to time. That used to work fine.
Or is that now problematic, too?

of these, i.e. W95. But if folk have been
forced to downgrade to subsequent versions
maybe it might fail
When Windows crashes and computer reboots, Scandisk
automatically deletes all report files because they have
incorrect size. So we must set "AutoScan=0" option in
However, there is much better way to solve this problem.
Titanix may close report files until the next test will be
passed, then append the report, write some info and close it
again, and so on. As I see, this way is implemented in PFGW.

AFAIK, the filesize of "0" and copy-error happen when the
file is opened for write. Titanix (2.1.1 maybe) can close
report files immediately after writing current test info to
them, and then append only when the next test will be
1) we'll be able to make a reserve copy of certificate in
any time when file is closed (i.e., almost always);
2) if Windoze suddenly reboot, Scandisk won't delete
clusters with certificate info, because the .out-file was
closed and hence had correct size.

It knows that I would shoot it:-)
I repeat: control freaks should set
- Why not take the prime95 approach to this? Every so often, save your
current results to disk. But rather than saving to simply 1 file,
alternately save to 2 files. Using a CRC and a timestamp, you can figure
out at program startup which is the last valid save. It's incredibly
unlikely that both files become corrupt.
