A week ago I upgraded to the final beta of Ubuntu 14.04 from the earlier beta.
Since then I have had 2 instances of files going missing from the file system.
Last week I had downloaded a movie (.mpg) from the web and had actually watched 1/2 of it using VLC before I decided it was too late at nite so I shutdown my Ubuntu 14.40 desktop system
Next morning I restarted the system and used Nautilus to browse to the directory I had stored that .mpg file in... and it was gone ??
At first I thought maybe I'd somehow deleted it... but my trash didn't have it either.
The next occurrence was yesterday. I had 15 Microsoft Word documents I had transferred from my work laptop to this same Ubuntu 14.04 machine using an external USB drive.
I edited each of those 15 files using Libre-writer to add additional content and saved each as a .ODT file.
Afterwards there were 30 files in that directory... the original 15 Word documents and the 15 modified .ODT files.
I printed each of the .ODT files and still have the hard copies.
Today... I needed to make some more changes and upon looking in that document directory... all 30 files were not there.
I know for certain I did not delete them.
Next I searched the entire 2TB (ext4) disk using
sudo find / -name *.docx -print
and it came back with nothing. Those Word docs were the ONLY Word docs (re .docx) I had on my Ubuntu system??
So now I believe something in the final Beta is causing these files to go missing.
Since I have not noticed any files that were on the file system BEFORE the recent "final" beta upgrade missing... I am suspecting only "new" files since the upgrade may be affected.
I did check the file system and there were NO errors reported.
So I wanted to ask if anyone else using the Final 14.04 beta has seen anything like this? If you are like me and this did happen to you ... you may have just assumed you misplaced the files or delted them. But after 2 occurrences now I do not think its me any longer.
