Deluge crash recovery

I just figured out that Deluge saves a quick-resume file in the same folder as the torrent (/home/me/.config/deluge/torrentfiles). I wondered how often it updates - now I suspect it updates every time Deulge successfully quits without an error.

If so, then a good idea is to quit and restart Deluge every 6 or 12 hours or so, thereby limiting the loss from a crash.

My external drive is NTFS, and likes to crash on I might start setting my timer.
