    Tiger deleting my files HELP!

    I just did an upgrade from panther to tiger on my 12" G4 Powerbook a couple of weeks ago. This morning I noticed something wierd happening. Tonns of my files have disappeared from my hard drive. The loss of these files hasn't freed up any disk space either. It's a 60GB drive with approximately 10GB in use. But finder tells me that I've only 2GB left. Sh1te!!!

    Has anybody heard of this happening before? Any ideas on how I might rectify this? Was thinking of zero-ing the free space on the drive. Thankfully everything has been backed up.

    If you have everything backed up I'd suggest doing a clean install and make sure the drive is formatted before installing OSX. It's in the options when installing.

    Yes, different users do take up extra space. I use two myself. One for work and one for internet. That way I can have the dock, games, emails and internet stuff separate to my work files. Have fun messing. :cool:
