Hi Joy -
Hm, I have never seen file versions from "a few days back" - usually on
a lock-up, you only have problems with files written in the last ~30
seconds - and then, you don't get the old version back, anyway.
1.0 is pretty ancient these days, if you're going to continue using the
machine I would strongly recommend upgrading to XFS release 1.0.2.
There is probably no way to recover data that you have lost through a
crash, it looks in your case like it never even hit the disk. Are you
_certain_ that the newer versions were ever really there on this
