Subject: Re: Session Archive. Where?

 You can specify filename/location. From doc\OPTIONS.txt:
--session=NAME give a new session the NAME
This option can only be used when starting a new cracking session andits purpose is to give the new session a name (to which John willappend the ".rec" suffix to form the session file name).  This isuseful for running multiple instances of John in parallel or to beable to later recover a session other than the last one you interrupt.john.log file will also be named NAME.log (whatever 'NAME' is), sothat any logging of the session work will end up in this file.

In the John the Ripper documentation it states that the session state is
saved in the file "John's home directory/john.rec".

I have John the Ripper installed in Windows in the directory
"john-1.9.0-jumbo-1-win64" and, neither in that directory, nor in the
"john-1.9.0-jumbo-1-win64/run/" there is no file named "john.rec". Could it
be called another way?

A greeting.
