Once again, thanks for sharing.

No argument with your first point. I do have multiple backups of my data.

Your second suggestion probably won't work for me, for

1) last time I tried, MacroExpress had some unicode-related issues.
2) while I do use other similar utilities, disabling the Del key isn't going to be enough for me, for I use the toolbar button (in Directory Opus or XYplorer) to delete files quite often.

I think it's not a big issue for me for I have always reserved drive letter D for my main data partition. As long as I can put all my .urd files in one permanent location on D:, I should be able to avoid the issue of missing cross-links. And even if for some reason they need to be re-located, creating a symlink in its original location shouldn't be hard. At least it should work till Kinook solves the problem on their end.
