Hey everyone, I'm running MacOS 9.1 on my 266MHz iMac and have run across my first big problem since erasing my hard drive and reinstalling OS 9 (then downloading 9.1) a week ago. The problem is that suddenly all my files (well more than 85%) are showing in the finder as being either 97k or 193k! Is it a virus, a preferene glitch, what??? Help please... When I do the apple-i for info, the files show up as that weird/false number, then show the actual memory size. I've also run across two "bombs" tonight. First while running Netscape 4.73, the other time when running IE 5. I've been working in GoLive 3 and Fireworks 3 tonight. I'm running RamDoubler 9.0.1 Below are some pictures of what I'm talking about.






Please help me, as I fear this problem could get worse. I keep everything on my hard drive and if it were to go bad I lose it all. I would network my other iMac to this one and send all my files over there, but I then fear that the other machine will experince similar issues.

Thank You!

Problem solved via IM - HD needed reformatting in HFS+ rather than HFS standard.
