Multiple Projects, One Folder - Merge or Overwrite?

Edit: Just tested it, and it does, indeed, merge the sites. Exactly what I thought.

I think I know the answer to this, but it's better to be safe than sorry, so I'll ask . . .

If I run multiple projects at different points in time, yet I use the same folder(s) for both projects, will the identified sites be merged, or will the newer sites overwrite the older sites?

Example:
  • Project 1 finds 100 Oxwall sites.
  • Project 2 finds 50 Oxwall sites.
Will the sitelist_Oxwall.txt file contain all 150 sites, or will it overwrite the previous 100 sites, leaving only the 50 identified in the newest project?

Thanks!

    There is no overwriting, it merges them together of course. You can have 5 projects all sending URL's to the same identified folder using different settings and it will still append the URL's to the file, not overwrite.  :)

    It just dawned on me that I could actually run a test of this in roughly the same amount of time it took me to type out the question. D'oh!
