Hie. I encountered with a system file corrupted, which caused me to reformat my whole comp. I'm running on windows xp sp 2. I partitioned my drive so that 1 is for back up. I saved all my mp3 songs in the back up driver[D: drive]. while the other main partition is for the operating system[C: drive]. Now, I reformated c drive and leave the D: drive untouched. But to my dismay, 1 of the folder in D drive (my music folder) turned into an unknown file format! This caused my whole songs files to be 'trapped' in it. The drive summary showed that the music are still in the drive as the disk space doesn't change. So the problem is the folder path which contains the mp3 had becomed an unknown file format which i cannot open using any programs. when i open with notepad, this is wat part of it shows :

Hence I'm sure the songs are still in there.
