Hey all, a while ago I accidentally screwed up when I was writing a program and ended up creating thousands of files for data. I then spent a full day using rm *.dat in order to remove them only able to do some amount at a time. Since doing this, my computer has never loaded as quickly as it used to. any help? Should I reinstall ubuntu 12.04? another question with that is, is there anyway to reinstall 12.04 and still keep all my apps and stuff? Thanks
