Hey,

So I've never tried to capture a wu in V7. I'll look into it and see if there is a way.

I know that there are "features" that detect whether or not a wu is old and it will automatically return it (there should be an option to ignore it)

all of the data is kept in a weird place. it's C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\FAHClient
in there you will find the cores, config file, work folder and some other stuff as well. inside the work folder you will find (if you have a slot running) a folder numbered to match what is shown in the "Work Queue" section of FAHControl. There shouldn't be a problem to copy/backup those folders and then overwrite them when you want to test a specific wu.

The trick is going to be keeping it for later when the deadline has past. That I'll have to look into

I could imagine there would be a problem with the bonus calculation if the deadline is past.

It would be a problem for monitoring programs, but if you use the calculator that Charlie linked using the tpf it wouldn't be a problem.

This set of instructions was written using the V6 Client, which has been a while since I used it. For a GPU Client, the 'SMP2' folder should be named 'GPU'. The 'Work' folder remains the same. For consistency, I would let the WU be folded for 10 frames, since the tpf (time-per-frame) can vary ever so slightly. Once you have an average tpf, this site could be used to calculate an average ppd (points per day): Folding@home Bonus Point Calculator

Exactly.

HOWEVER, if there is a way to keep the WU and reset it to zero completion, it should be relatively easy to use a TPF -> PPD calculator to determine points value...I think.

The only thing is how would you reset the WU and load it into a new system?

I'd just copy it to another location when it was new. the only problem would be the deadlines I think.
I know with version 6.34 there were options to:
1. ignore deadlines
and
2. ask before sending/receiving data (or something along those lines)

I found the option for ignoring the deadlines. I'll see what I can do about actually capturing a wu and getting it to run a second time.

I'll let you know how it goes

Any luck in recycling a used WU?

I did try a quick test(simple copy paste), it didn't like it.

I haven't had a lot of time to play with it yet. I plan to this week/weekend as I have some time free coming up
