    Recently I transfered a few internet shortcuts (all in a folder) from partition C to partition E, by going into My Computer and cutting the folder from one partition to the other. The thing is, lots and lots of the transfered files have been renamed to code words. For example AMB2FA~1, AM4A83~1, AM8F35~1 and AM64E6~1. Some of the files still remain with their original names, but they are very few, and I'm worried that maybe they'll all go this way soon. Also, this didn't happen immmediately after the move, but rather 1-2 days later (I'm not 100% sure).

    My second and last question is would it be ok to delete my C partition and just use the E one for now? A copy of XP Home is installed on both, and I get dual boot options at the moment. Later I might want to recreate, reformat and reinstall XP on partition C again, but for now I don't, and I'm worried that partition E wont boot if I delete or reformat C.
