As it's running, can NodeXL data be stored?

Hi everyone! I was wondering if there's a way for to store NodeXL data as it's running? This would be especially helpful when mining 18K tweets since I wouldn't have to worry about the possibility of my computer freezing or shutting down and losing a week's worth of work. (It's already happened.) Any information in this regard would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! -g

Thank you for the interest in NodeXL!

NodeXL stores data imported during collection from social media in RAM and writes that data when completed.

There is no feature presently that writes that data to a file until the download is completed.

As a precaution, you may want to configure NodeXL to save the data immediately after download but before running the complete analysis.
