It's been a while since I crunched here. I can't recall, does this application checkpoint?

Hi zombie,
it does but there are not many. Leave app in memory and all will be fine.

Yes, that's correct. The app checkpoints but not very often and there is some overhead to restarting from a checkpoint.

Best,

Thanks everyone!

But that doesn't help when one needs to reboot (stupid windows updates). ;)

Thats right. But with your equipment, the loss should be insignificant ;)
If you want to catch the right point in time, you should sometimes look in the properties of a WU. There you can see, when the last CP has been passed.
