I just tried to use KleanSweep. I thought I was being safe because I archived everything. Now I can't open a single file, even the ones I just archived. I can't add or delete any applications. I really screwed myself over.
So then I come here and search "KleanSweep" and discover it will destroy your system. I'm such an IDIOT for not looking here first!
Okay, so, how do I fix this? I really don't want to just do a reinstall because I had so much stuff that I'd like to recover. Plus I'm not sure I can still burn a disc after what I've done.
PS. On the thread where I learned KleanSweep is a bad idea, there was discussion of what to do instead but not what to do if you've already done it. The thread was from back in August.
ETA: Fantastic. I thought I could boot from my old 7.10 disc and then burn a new one of 9.10 but I can't. There's not room on the disc, obviously. Is there ANYTHING I can do? Are all the photos on my hard drive lost forever now? I can't boot up from my hard drive at all. I'm booting from the 7.10 disc right now. I can burn a 9.10 CD at a friend's house or something, but I still just don't want to lose everything if I can get around it.
