Thread: Missing Files

  1. #1
    I was downloading some movies and suddenly some files gone missing. They were not completed downloads, just say 30% of it. I have a feeling that somebody ( hacker?) actually distroyed them. Is it possible? How to prevent it? Does anybody else have similar experience? Thanks for your help...

    no they might have gotten deleted because they got corrupt, check your shared folder for dat files, and run an upto date av+adaware incase its a virus or a trojen

    if you are not a supernode then you are not a (server as you put it)

    hackers don't use kazaa to goof around with your files

    did you check your folder for dat files??? have you changed the path of your shared folder lately???

    did you run an spyware (not anti virus) like ad aware, like i asked??

    try reading the faq please
