you can try and make a copy of your hard drive, but since you have all the corruption going on right now, it is too late.
a 'drive image/copy' should be made as soon as you get a real cherry install with all your stuff loaded, not with probs like this.
best thing for you to do is run the diagnostic utility for that drive (you can get it at their website) to see if there are problems.
also, get another hard drive, load the OS on it, slave the bad drive to it and see if you can then get your stuff off you want to save, this is, of course, if the hard drive is really crapping on you, which seems to be what's happening.
if the drive is going bad, the longer you wait, the worse it will get. i have read that freezing the sucker overnite can help one that may be on the brink, then get your data off quickly upon hookup.good luck.
