I'm only guessing this is a Vista fluke but it seems like a safe bet.
I opened up my ftp software which I've been running for a couple of years without incident on my XP computer. All of my sites that were listed with ftp information are gone! What?
Oh, well, I have kind of a back up here with a database that lists all of my sites with essential information. I'll just have to recontruct my ftp software files with that.
What? That table is gone? Two totally different programs. One in the root drive and the other in c:/program files are both mysteriously gone. To clarify, the programs are still there and run but the db file/table and the config file for the ftp software is gone.
Dang! (or, something close to that)
So I restore back to two weeks previous and recover the files. Immediately copy them over to a usb drive and remove drive from usb port.
Restore foward to current. The two files in question are still on the harddrive. And stay there for a week.
Today they're both gone. For all I know other files may have gone missing, too. Anyone have a clue to this being a Vista problem, voodoo, or something else?
Any possible solutions? I'm thinking wipe the harddrive and go back to XP but I finally had Vista running without problems (I thought) until this happened and we know that's going to cost me a lot of time.
