    Default "Windows xp pc , it's not saving my files"

    hi dears friends!!

    I'm having a very wierd issue, this is the fisrt time i see this kind of issue and i would like to know if somebody can help me out with this.

    Evevrytime i saved data on this computer and reset the computer everything that i saved goes, in others words desappears. For example if i copy an audio cd, save a MP3 folder, a new game, a new document, whatever, it gets lost as soon as i rebooted the pc.

    I tried tryied to fix this running a system restore but the issue still happening, what i see it's all my data that i save it saves on the ram memory and when power off or reset the pc everything gets lost.

    I would like to hear a feed back from you to see what i can do to fix this.

    Create a new file and remember its name and extension. Reboot and do a search for this file and see if it's being saved somewhere else on your PC. Keep us posted.

    Depending on which WMP version you're using, in WMP10 right click on the song in the Library and select 'Open containing folder', this should take you to the folder where your saved music is.

    Lets try this:

    1. Right on an empty space on your "desk top"

    2. Click on "New"

    3. Scroll down to "Text Document"

    4. Now double click on the "new text document.txt" Icon

    5. This will open the new blank document

    6. Type something in there, any thing you want.

    7. Now click on "File" top left hand corner

    8. The next prompt you will get is to "yes -no - cancel"

    9. Select "Yes"

    10. Re boot the PC- Click on the "New Text document" is your typed text still there ?
