Plain text files that I have previously saved, and not modified or moved, using Windows Notepad, now have characters missing. The URL in each .txt file has the same characters missing, the colon and forward slash. Any ideas?
Text File 1
Text File 2
This is my routine; I download software, for example BleachBit, from say SourceForge and save it to a folder. Then in the same folder I create a new plain text file using Windows Notepad. I copy the URL of the software I have downloaded from Firefox, and paste the URL into the newly created text file. The reason being, someone else can see exactly where the software originated if there is a problem with the installation. Only 2% of the text files that I have created are exhibiting the above behavior. Any ideas greatly appreciated.
