[farmshare-discuss] FarmShare maintenance complete

Hi Adam,

Every since the power outage, I haven't been able to cd into the user_data
directory in Farmshare and yet it works in Farmshare2. It kept saying "no
such directory" while I can see it in the parental directory. Am I the only
person having this problem? Thanks!
