Well, I keep my MAME and MESS "data" installations (ROMs, samples, images etc.) in separate folders, not even near QMC2 itself... the data/* folders are just defaults, and probably not suitable for sources from multiple emulators... so again, you're free to do it the way you prefer.

Regarding your harddisk: @$#! -- glad you got it all set up again smile
