    Re: file names are changing?

    I'd check the event log for clues. One thing that might trigger this is if
    some permissions changed denying access to some or all of the profile
    directory.

    You might want to download the diagnostic tools from the disk manufacturers
    web site. Disk may be failing and or file system corruption.

    I will do that but there is no other sign of disk failure occurring
    including nothing on the event viewer. The rest of the system seems to be
    working just fine. What about something to do with SugarSync online backup?
    I have that installed on both computers. Today I have deleted the program
    but of course it is too late.

    Hi Dave,
    You have sorted it. Thanks for the push in the right direction. I have
    checked their help pages and it mentions exactly the problem I am having and
    the reasons behind it. (not the cure though).

    Thanks again.
    Lenny

    That's good to hear. Hopefully you can get them to come up with the fix.
