[TRLog] Floppy backup

Just for fun, in the ARRL DX I tried out the floppy backup for the first 
time.  I set the floppy file save frequency to 10.

The part that was comforting:
When I got up Sat am I rebooted the computer which meant, of course, 
that I had to eject the floppy.  I forgot to reinsert it and, later on, 
noticed a message that floppy back up attempt had failed, so reinserted 
it.  Worried that I might not have backed up some Qs but, when checking 
the log at the end, the ones that I was worried about were all there.

The part that wasn't:
The last 12 Qs are missing from the backup.  Is there something I am 
supposed to do at the end other than ALT-X to quit TR and say Yes to the 
question about saving the last five or so Qs?

No disaster here.  The main log is fine but I would like to know if I'm 
doing something wrong.
