Does not sound right. You should check the C: drive for inconsistencies through Properties - Tools - Error-checking.

Not something that I've ever run across unless a Backup program is installed where all the files in the Documents & Settings Folder is backed up after the event.

If you find out what is happening Please let me know as I would love to have this option as an Auto Backup for DR work.

Cheers it seems the defrag tool mirrors all the folders on C so the File allocation table thinks there is two folders for each although there is only one true folder, deleting a file in a folder deleted both so the checkdisk /f /r fixed the the errors on the desk.
