well, i have post a new topic before but was moved to another place..

the key of this new post is;
I AM SCARED that the scenario i had before (all JPGS pictures vanished, and nobody was able to find what was the cause) could be repeated again.

why i am saying that?
in this system (new HDD with fresh windows 7 install) have few pictures, while scanning (superantispyware)the the old disk (the one were all the pictures were delete by an unknown reason) i notice one picture was missing, but i found instead a file named; "EL 71B9.tmp", by certain reason i decide to copy the file and to change it's extension to jpg, and voila, my picture was there.

WHAT is happening?
