    Hi all

    I have recently added a 200Gb hdd as a secondary to a 80Gb. All worked fine for a couple of days and then all of a sudden I got a message saying that one of my drives needs to be checked. After WinXP "recovered" some of the files, my installation executables now appear as MSDOS programs and will not run in Windows. At this stage it appears to be only EXE files that are affected. This is particularly irritating seeing as I dumped all the installations of my software packages on a partition for faster installation.

    Any suggestions?
