Hi Joy -
Hm, I have never seen file versions from "a few days back" - usually on

Sync hangs the box and I think the box locked because off the amount of
processes waiting to get data written. I have seen this happen myself. If
this happens sync/mount and some other utilities won't work and you can't
get that data back.
Upgrading to a newer version is indeed a smart idea.
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
