Yesterday I had to push the reset button in WinXP Pro because the system hung (no surprise - it's XP) Today I discovered that my games-dir was almost gone! Several GB just disappeared. Some dirs were gone, some were still there, but only a few little files in them (files that were changed lately). The weird thing: I have Norton Protection running on my system, and I opened the list of protected files (deleted files are protected so they can be restored later). And there were the files! As if I deleted them with my own hands! But obviously I didn't. The bad thing: Norton Protection was set to use only 1% of the harddisk space, so only 600 MB were rescued. Do you have an idea what I can do? By the way: There are already some other filesystem problems (e.g. a filename without a file), but stupid scandisk reports that everything is ok. So I'm not really surprised about the mentioned file loss. BUT PLEASE, I NEED HELP! (Aaaaargh - Windows XP sucks!) Can I downgrade it to Windows 2000? Maybe just install it over XP Pro?
