Default Can I fall back a few iterations in the test?

I changed a new CPU to my system, and at the first boot it was unstable. I didn't remember to stop the 2 instances of Prime95 in time (running dual core). It ran for a few seconds max, only verbose being that it "resumed .. at iteration XX". How often does it save the results? Should I start whole test again, or is there a way to fall back a few iterations? Would be a shame to throw away weeks of work.

Been running 2x torture test for 27 hours now, and if it's ok at 36h, I'm planning to start the real deal again.

You are probably OK if results.txt didn't find errors. You can go back one save file by saving the pXXXXXXX save files and then renaming the qXXXXXXX save files to pXXXXXXX.
