 2005-07-16, 01:40 #1 nostream   22·33·7·11 Posts disk writes and results file outputs Hi, Im currently writing a little report for the website www.dirkvader.de about how to stress test a pc with prime95 and other software. Unfortunately Ive nowhere found a complete explenation of what happens with the "Iterations between results file outputs" exactly if the pc crashes. My Question: Does the "Minutes between disk writes:" Option affect the "Iterations between results file output:" Option in the way that entries in the results.txt file are only written to disk depending on what Ive chosen in the "Minutes between disk writes:" Option or not? Many thanks to your answers to my noob-question ;)

So you mean the "Minutes"-Option doesnt influence how often the "results.txt" file is saved to disk, am I right?

Thanks.

Yes, you are correct.

This is useful for cross-checking when a number is being tested on two machines at the same time - e.g. when a prime is found and is being double-checked. It has nothing to do with disk-writes in the conventional Prime95 sense and no savefiles are written.
