I know what found.001 etc files are. However I've been having problems with my favourite browser crashing and freezing my laptop. Each time I have tried to reinstall and run the program I have had the same freeze after a few minutes. Out of interest I looked at the found.001 files and was amazed their were several numbered 001 upwards and each was 2 GB or more. I've removed them to my recycle bin with no apparent problems when running XP and another browse. My question is 'why are the found.00x files so massive and what do they contain if I can effectively delete them with no ill effect'?
ventanas - <found.001> is a Windows file that contains (as woodchip says) all the errors <scandisc> cannot fix. I was wondering why it was such a large file. I can only assume my errant browser has a problem that's causing 2GB of HDD errors everytime it crashes. I've tried reinstalling and I can open some TABS in my browser but when I get to quite a small number (<10) it crashes. Before I could have >20 TABS open without any problems. It worked OK for a long period before the problem started!
