It was only a few days since i played gmod so i launched it but today it said that my cloud saves couldnt load so i clicked on play anyways, later on i couldnt launch because gameinfo.txt was missing so i checked my gmod folder and noticed that most of what i had was wiped including vpks and some folders have been modified on 1/1/2014 7.57 PM at almost the same time, the data folder has been wiped only leaving a file for a loadout addons.
The downloads folder was modified at the same time the data folder was, addons folder was not wiped clean leaving several gma’s behind.
But what i’m afraid of is that a folder called Cheat Engine was created and another called comtypes_cache which both i do not recognize seeing it named as Cheat Engine i went in and saw Temp. files in it and because of the name i deleted it immediately.
Cheat engine was NOT running while gmod or any source game was open so i dont see why the temp files would be created there for any reason.
I found this pretty strange and wondered if anyone had a similar experience or if this was a normal random bug.
