So if too much time has passed since that session, there's nothing much to do.

I remember seeing that warning soon after I started using Linux and in two 
occasions. I remember doing the scandisk now at least on the first time it 
happened,  but not sure about the second. That warning about unmounting in 
windows still came out, so the cause might have been somewhere else. Luckily 
I haven't lost anything.

And now I'm happy I've found a solution to my other problem. Free bear to 
everyone in the list! Er... well... if you all can came and get it at my 
place, that is! ;)
