So when I click the "Get Info" option on a file to get to the Spotlight Comments section I am no longer able to see my past comments.

I can add new comments on other files but my mac won't show the comments I left on past files.

Has anyone encountered this problem before? Is their a way to recover them?

I actually save certain passwords in them for my true crypt partitions. Without the comments over 50 GB of my movies and pics will be lost and that would make me really sad.
