I just discovered that some of my files have traveled back in time! I like to keep my files arranged by modification date and was surprised to find that some (but not all) of my files are now showing a "Modified" date in December, instead of today's date like they should.
I am using Ubuntu Release 10.04 (lucid), Kernel Linux 2.6.32-38-generic, GNOME 2.30.2 . The folder/directory I 'm looking at is in a ext3 filesystem.
I booted up this morning, and it did do that disk check thing, but I don't think it changed anything at that time (but I wasn't really on for long). It's only after I booted up again this evening that I noticed things weren't where I expected them.
This is so annoying! Does anybody know what happened and how I can fix this?
