That happened on my MacBook Pro,too.
Now I have contacted to support center and required something useful information.
But there is no hope to recover all data.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 14, 2009 3:29 AM (in response to dbferrari)Maybe it will be usefull but last days I tried to login as *Guest* (because I didn't want to logout as my user). In *system preferences* I allowed guest login, then I fast switched to *Guest Account*, do some changes in profile like mouse movement and so on, then I correctly logged out and logged once more to my account. Now I affraid off rebooting macbook (I always hybernate system with changed default settings which store memory into HDD) until the fix will be released. Probably the data was not removed, because I was logged in as me and */Users/$USER* was still in use. Now I am wondering if I can reboot safelly macbook without losing my data..
For backup do I need to use some command for backuping home to windows machine through *SMB*? because unix like systems have links and so on.. (in *AIX OS* I have to use "*rsync*" command, which copy whole data exactly as it is stored on filesystem - if there is link it will copy only that link, not file which is linked...)MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 16, 2009 2:57 AM (in response to carlodituri)There is no excuse for this serious bug, but also there is no excuse for not having a daily backup. Not backing up before a system update is just asking for it.
Currently Being ModeratedOct 17, 2009 12:19 AM (in response to CyKi)I am in the same situation. I didn't loose any file because I have fast user switching activated; and now I am afraid of rebooting the mac; or login off. Could some one tel what to do?imac 24 2.8ghz, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
