      makes my 67mb seem quite reasonable! ;-)

      i'm kicking myself actually. i have in my possession a very nifty piece of back up-ware
      called 'second copy 2002' (http://www.centered.com) which is perfect for this type of
      situation but i didn't have my thinking cap on. anyhoo, it's now set up for incremental
      back ups of the .fvrs folder, here on in.

      i think i was lulled into a false sense of security having done numerous upgrades over the
      past few years. of course, these leave your personal settings well alone...

      just as well i created my own libraries then, instead of tampering with the existing ones.

      guess what? i'm in agreement with you! ;-) if a file is editable you should at least be
      give the option of retaining them. the pop-up alert would be an ideal solution but it's no
      use crying over deleted files... i'll still be moving up to the much anticpated v.5 when
      it lands.
