After living overseas for a good portion of my adult life, listening on a
regular basis to those with English as a second language, I had no problems
understanding it. The person placed some files on a hard drive and then
moved the hard drive to another computer. On the new computer, he installed
XP on one of the partitions he made earlier. When he finally went looking
for the files he originally placed on the hard drive, he could see them but
not open them. Later, he couldn't even see them anymore. However, he
suspects the files are still there because the drive (free and used) space
has not changed. He is now hoping someone can suggest a possible cause of
the problem and how to fix it - how to get those files back.
