Feature Request: If a "Digital Release" is stopped, all of the printed songs are deleted

I believe this changed around Studio One 5. For example, if I'm printing a ten song album as a "Digital Release", and I need to stop printing after song six for some reason (e.g.something was noticed in a song that needed to be edited, a digital or analog dropout occurred, etc.), then the songs that had been printed get deleted automatically. This is another workflow disruption that can be a problem for professionals (especially when using analog gear and printing in real time), as the songs that were printed with no issues have to be re-printed for no reason. The workaround I use is copying the songs as they're printed to a "safety" folder, but it would be nice to have the option to stop this.

Agreed (and up-voted).

There should be a dialog box that gives us the option (just like the one we get when we abort an export).

Now, with the newest update, the aforementioned workaround doesn't even work. I'm not able to open or move the printed files until the entire process is done. The potential for wasted time here is huge.
