That's precisely what I'm afraid of, and it doesn't surprise me that it's
possible. What was the nature of the destruction? Was it somethng that
could have been prevented by the installation of Windows on a separate HDD
altogether? That's the setup I'm looking to establish. But I'm *still* not
sure that would be safe. I'm even considering unplugging my Linux drives
every time I boot Windows. :P
