Be aware that anything added to My Documents since will be lost so if you need to copy it to somewhere else first.
Wow thanks a lot. I can restore to previous versions. It has 300GB to organize so it'll take 2hrs...gotta go to work. I'll just let it like that and hopefully when I come back. It will be done. Many thanks.
