this will NOT have stopped your system working. core files are not at all essential. do you remember doing anything else that might have caused this? what is actaully happening, please provide a LOT more information if you want us to be able to help you.

Do you mean core as in the ones with the little bomb icon (they are actually named "core") or system files?

Core files are created when a program crashes for debugging purposes, so don't use that name unless you mean to
