DX4WIN already has this feature!  Look for the word "Modified" in the
top of main DX4WIN window after you log a QSO.  Timer starts.  For the
first two minutes, the timer is RED and the QSOs are not saved yet.
After two minutes, the word "Modified" turns BLACK and the new QSOs
are saved in a temporary log file.

In your DX4W### (i.e. DX4W805 or DX4W903) directory -- NOT the SAVE
directory), there should be a couple of files with names like:


These are the backup files created when the log has not been saved for
the last two minutes (120 seconds).  See if those files are there.
You will have to copy or renamem them to .DXL so DX4WIN can open them.
They *may* have your missing QSOs.
