Subject: a Windows 95 problem

This is a highly technical query, but I am hoping that some Humanist
may have experienced the same problem I am having and found a

Sometime after installing a new hard disk, and transferring Windows
95 to it from an older hard disk, I began to have problems saving and
sometimes opening files in certain packages (e.g. NetScape,
Programmer's File Editor), though not all. For example, after running
Netscape for a while, I click on an item to download, get the
dialogue box asking me what I want to do, and when I click on Save
As the program quickly reports that the operation has been done --
but it hasn't. Sometimes when I attempt to open a file, nothing
happens at all. The problem is always cured temporarily by exiting
and reloading the program, but then recurs soon after. The fact that
the problem turns up in various programs seems to point to the
operating system.

Any clues or suggestions would be welcome.
