Default Moving partially completed exponents

Hi, I know that this question is somewhat addressed in the FAQ, but I am still a bit lost.

I started running prime95 on a new computer, and it made the usual intermediate files on the desktop. Since it was a bit messy, I moved Prime95 into its own directory. I updated/rebooted the computer and apparently it saw that there was no worktodo, so it downloaded new exponent assignments into the directory that it is currently in.

Since I had a lot of progress lost on those early exponents, how should I best transfer those files to the newer directory? Don't I need to alter the worktodo file as well?

Thanks!

Exit prime95.

Copy all the intermediate files from the old directory.

Manually edit the two worktodo.txt files, copying lines from the old directory into the new directory's worktodo.txt.

Restart prime95.

Thanks, I think that did the trick!
