I feel for you too, these sorts of things always happen, specially on
Microsoft based filesystems.

If someone fsck.vfat a corrupt FAT32 then expect to see their files and
directories disapears..
The FAT/NTFS based filesystem as a means of exchanging data between
different OS's is always a headache, and it sucks... primarily, being
ubiquitous, those FS doesn't improve anything.. Microsoft's softwares _is_


Don't let your future genes deteriorate..
