Thanks for both of your responses. Sorry for the non-threaded post, but I'm e-mailing from somewhere else. @ Mogens Kjaer I have tried this already @ William L. Maltby I have looked everywhere on the drive using programs such as 'find'. I have ran: $ find / -iname "*.jpg" -or "*.JPG" and the missing files are now listed. I know enough to be able to find files. This is whats got me because I've never know an ext3 fs to do this; unless it's a bug with fuse-encfs.
