    most bizarre/dangerous accident/bug

    I wouldn't dare to try to reproduce this..
    Here's what happened (using CF2 806).
    I went into Settings | Audio/Video to setup Video Folders, clicked on Video Folders --> was presented with a list with default location (just one as far as I remember - My Documents/My Videos or something like that) - Was going to delete that one and add the location where my video files were stored
    -- clicked on the minus sign
    -- female voice started to speak something GPS related - I ignored that
    -- I was given the standard dialog asking me if I was "sure to remove this directory from my video folders"
    -- clicked "yes"
    -- a lot of disk activity started to happen and soon my PC froze dead.
    -- rebooted. It did boot into XP but gave me some error messages, I looked and found that
    most of the files on the C: drive were gone!

    most bizarre..

    I believe, that was really an isolated accident..
    Something got cross-linked either in CF or in Windows XP.
    I mean it will not happen every time you add/remove a video folder.
    After restoring my system backup, I went and repeated all those actions and didn't have any problem.
