This will work - but I am not a big fan of write caching.

I usually do this:


Be warned that if your computer is shutdown before you exit TR Log
you will lose all of your exchange memory info.  This is not a problem
in contests like CQ WW, ARRL SS.

Another thing you can do is get rid of your TRMASTER.DTA file - by 
renaming to some other name. 

Also you can set this if you still need more help.
