You have more faith in software engineers than I do! I have had to reformat hard drives twice due to corruption, one I
couldn't track down that was probably the result of a hardware mismatch, and one that was very obviously a beta version of
Netscape Communicator. (I was working for Netscape at the time.) Luckily I was good about keeping backups both times, in
fact both times I had a backup copy on my desktop machine.

Thanks again to all for opinions
