    No data written if experiment crashes -> workarounds? (case 27293)

    We are running MediaLab v2014 on Windows 7 computers, and occasionally our experiment file crashes (for a variety of reasons that aren't the focus of this particular post). Unless the experiment successfully runs through to completion, no responses are saved in the data file, meaning the participant has to repeat the entire experiment.

    This was acknowledged as a [fixable] issue for DirectRT back in 2008 (http://www.empirisoft.com/support/sh...-case-of-crash), but that rationale doesn't explain why MediaLab wouldn't be able to write in real time, or at least save periodically throughout the experiment (e.g., at the end of each questionnaire).

    Is there a way to write data throughout the course of the experiment that we're missing? Any insight would be much appreciated, as alternatives like breaking out our questionnaires into smaller experiments to force data writing more frequently don't fit well with the study design.

    Thanks!
