regular autosave of the par2 database please
« on: September 12, 2016, 10:13:10 AM »
The main download database is saved on a regular basis, but if for some strange reason alt.binz crashes or my Windows BSOD, when I recover, the par2 database hasn't been updated since the last correct exit of the program.

If I have been running alt.binz for several days, and it crashes out of the blue (I'm still trying to lock down whether this is replicable) or as I mentioned previously, Windows 10 does it's Blue Screen "bad_pool_header" which is a useless bit of crash info since it tells me nothing about what caused it.  Once Windows reboots, and I load alt.binz again, the par2 database is missing everything unparred and unrarred for the past several days, at least up until the last proper exit of the program.

Ideally the par2 database probably should be updated after every new par2 is loaded, but this is not the behaviour I am seeing.

Is it possible to modify the par2 database saving behaviour please?  Thanks in advance.
