This Thread might be related somehow to this Thread
, except there is nothing mentioned about sleep-mode.
i was just looking up the internet for a solution of that very problem, when i found this forum. the thing is that i have the same problem. i plugged in my pen-drive, did some work in the internet and finally wasn't able to find my data anymore. all there was are files and folders with names made of cryptical symbols and with insane storage-size (between a few mb till 2 gb). if i'd added the size of that files all together it would be the size of the pen-drive with a factor of let's say 10. so what i did was that i plugged it into my old windows xp desktop-computer and it showed the same data as linpus before. for the fact that both systems showed the same thing i thought it to be a failure of the pen-drive. some more thing to mention, the amount of cryptical files and folders weren't the same amount of my original files and folders.
so there is just nothing more to tell about this issue. i didnt used recovery and did put the pen-drive in a secure place since there are some important files on and i was hoping to find a solution in some months or so.
i bought a new pen-drive. downloaded a few files from the internet at university-pool (windows) went home and downloaded a few files (pdf) more that i needed in addition. the system of linpus went into sleep-mode after i did the same thing :-D. since the system worked fine in the last weeks all the differents there is, is the sleep-mode. i would say that this is the trigger-point. i woke up and most of my files were gone. again cryptical names, this time mixed with some names ot original files and folders, but both weren't accessable anymore. the pendrive is a different typ this time, therefore it's definitly no failure of those devices.
FILES INCLUDED IN THAT ISSUE:
exe, html, pdf, txt, dll, (all kind of files of many different portable-win-apps), jpg, mp3, bmp, just everything there is!!!
not the whole pendrive is been destroyed but all root-folders which i worked in during the session before the sleep-mode. that means if i work at a file in a subfolder of a rootfolder for example. all the files and subfolders (with their folders and files and so on) are gone be destroyed. even if i didnt even worked in that folder but since it has the same root folder as the folder i worked in: GONE.
