I was recently hit with the "google.exe" bug and was given a warning about my disk. Not knowing if this was a real microsoft warning or an attempt to get me further in trouble I opted to NOT scan the disk. I rebooted and then restored to a prior date. I then discovered that I was missing a number of files (about 9 gb). I couldn't find them anywhere, that is until I did a defrag and there they showed up. I then checked my backup in Norton and the files were there also. I could double click and get them. BUT couldnt save them or retrieve them otherwise. This is the only place I can access them but cant restore them or save them.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks
