Angry Save Session Bug?


Sometimes, if I open a lot of active SecureCRT sessions and shutdown Windows normally, I will loose almost all the information for a saved session, including SSH connection method, host name, user ID and password. I have to re-enter these information again. As if, SecureCRT re-writes and saves all the session information upon its exit and if it didn't get enough time to re-save all the session information, the session information will get lost. This problem is not unique to version 5, I had similar problems with earlier version. My questions are:

1) Does SecureCRT re-save all the session settings before it exits?
2) If so, can we have an "Auto-save" option? so that, the options will be saved immediately when they are changed and SecureCRT will NOT re-save these information when exiting.

Please advise.

Session settings are not saved automatically when you exit unless "Auto Save Options" is on. This is found on the Options menu. Also on this menu is "Save Settings Now", which allows you to force a save manually.
