Well first of all this firefox addon has ticked me off. Well ill try not to curse or anything. Firetorrent has deleted most of my desktop files such as text docutments and emptied all my folders that contained files after i put a download on, and when firefox froze.

Well is there any way i could get those files back ? or were they moved or something ? well I'm pretty much upset over it, i used system restore and well i got the folders back but they are epmty and the text/ doc files are all gone.

We will look into this, but our first thoughts are that we doubt FireTorrent caused to delete all files/folders on your desktop, as the plugin only writes new files to the Desktop and doesn't delete files.

We're investigating and will let you know what we find out.

PS: If files aren't in the trash, you might want to try some recovery software like
