In FLP8, is it possible to save the search result of a specific run in a format that FLP can re-use as the basis for later querying?

I've just complete a search of 8M files that took 66 hours to complete (without crashing - great job FLP!) resulting in 19K matches. I would like to use the result for future investigation, without having to re-run the query. Just exporting the results to a report is not sufficient.
Unfortunately, my PC is subjected to a weekly forced reboot which will result in the loss of the current run.
FTR indexing the source files is not an option.

To save the search so it can be reloaded in future use the menu option File -> Save Search....

Alternatively, you can also save the whole workspace, ie all searches, using the menu option File -> Save Workspace....

Excellent, thanks.
Not sure how I missed that after all these years ;)
