Warp deals with power loss well but not allways perfectly. Though in my
years of experience with it I've never noticed a single fault caused by
power loss, I have noticed that the autocheck will 'find' 'lost files' and
place them in x:\found00x folders. I think they are hash files because
the originals are all in thier correct places and the system runs

I just delete the folder(s) whenever I see one which is rare.

This is on an HPFS formatted drive. A power failure can screw the
filesystem just like windows if you run fat. I gave up on fat about the
time I got OS/2....
