I'm typing this from my own (Pardus running) computer... It worked!

Thank you for you help, advice and patience.

My sticky notes, favourites and files all seem intact. I'll be shopping for that external hard drive in the morning (proper morning).

Thanks again

Debbie :)

You're welcome :)

If you earlier deleted the ~/Music directory .. it may be a good idea to re-create it, as it's probably a system directory:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/Music
if it already exists, that command will fail .. but it won't hurt to run it.

I ran the command, it failed and when I checked, yes it did exist so the success is all down to your instruction :)

Thank you
