Looks like it saves data each half hour. So NOTHING is lost. Maybe a beta testing program?

all prime95 does is basicualy work your computer at max trying to find out Prime numbers and after you run it basicualy will tell you your computer is stable because of after running it for so long nothing you could do to make your computer crash will work unless poor programing. Thats all Prime95 does basicualy you use it to test out if your computer is working properly. From what i understand.

It runs fine now, so I don't need a program that takes a month to tell me that!
