I use Emule for years now, never had any problems worth mentioning, but my current installation is behaving strangely:
It started like 2 weeks ago when i found a strange file in my completed files folder, dont know the exact name but it was something like 'z5Tx2H4r.tmp'. I am a 100% sure that i never ordered emule to download such a file so i deleted it.
Then 2 days ago, while firing up emule, i got a message saying something like: 'Your Friends.met file is corrupt' (just in case it is important: i never use emule friends or chat or anything like that). I restarted my comp, started emule again and the message didnt show up again.
Yesterday I added a few more files to the download, without noticing that my diskspace wasnt enough for them, so when i later checked, I realized that most of the newly added files where put on hold, so far so good, my bad i know!
But: Today, i cleaned up my HD, made more than enough room for all the downloads, started emule and discovered that most of the downloads are gone! There is only 2 files (out of maybe 15) left in the list, under shared files it also only shows these 2 files and no, i dont work with download categorys so they are not hidden anywhere! when i check my 'Temp' folder, all the temp files are still there, its just that emule doesnt want to work with them anymore... all the files in question lack the *.part.met.bak file though, there is only the other two, the *.part files and the *part.met files.
So i am quiet confused:
- are these problems related?
- has someone hijacked my emule?
- how can i 'reinsert' the already existing temp files, or do i have to redownload them again?
- should i reinstall emule?
- any other info/suggestions?
