    behind you!
    I have begun to notice that my mac (pb g4 1.33 10.4.3) sometimes just dumps a random selection of my files in the trash, i pick it up most of the time but not always. The files mostly seem to originate from my external HD (Lacie 150gb), anyone know why this is happening and how i can prevent it?

    Gone but not forgotten.
    Recovered files?

    It would seem that various processes have ended abruptly due to a crash or just don't handle their temporary files correctly. Why Mac OS X is putting these in the Trash rather than simply deleting them, I don't know but it was the same way with Mac OS 9.x so maybe, it's better safe than sorry.
