Re: File corrupted on crash reboot. Can someone help diagnose?
:I had an email that I was writing to a few people. The computer rebooted
:itself. I restarted Kmail and found the message window empty. I cd'ed into the
:directory where it keeps autosaved copies of email being composed and found
:that it had been overwritten with zero bytes. Fortunately I could recover the
:content with undo (I've had this happen on Linux and was out of luck). Can
:someone receive the undo output and the reboot times and figure out what
:happened? I don't want to post it publicly, as it's a personal email, but I
:can send it privately to a developer.
