Backup sessionmanager

Is there any way to back up sessionmanager? I have had several instances of my backup sessions being deleted/corrupted when I uninstall an add-on, install updates or when my computer crashes. Sessionmanager successfully saves my sessions most of the time but sometimes everything gets deleted and there are only the saved sessions from two months ago.

Hello, the session data is stored in the sessionstore.js file, in the profile folder.

you can move the sessionstore.js to a different profile, or copied and after delete your corrupted, move it to your current profile(but you have to copied every day.... if you want to be update !)
