I am running Ubuntu 12.04 from a 16GB Kingston SDHC card because my Hard Disk died.

Some days ago I started noticing that the files I stored in a session were lost after shutting down and turning on it again, btw the sd card still has like 7GB free.

It's like my laptop only had temporary memory and every thing done in the last session is lost after shutting down.

Edit: It's a full install.
