[Bf-cycles] where is cycles image stored?

there is no such mechanism that you could use to save a frame after a 
cycle that I am aware of (maybe a custom python script?)
Also, Cycles does not save a file to the HDD while rendering, it keeps 
the buffer in RAM.

Your issue sounds like a memory problem, that it runs out of memory 
after a certain time?
