[Wine] Winetricks deleted most of my hard drive

> One thing I wondered (in my general ignorance of such matters) is whether the problem was caused by a link I had set up in my home directory called "c_drive" which is actually a link to where I mount a windows hard drive when I need access to it from linux. I notice looking through the code in winetricks reference to a similarly named link - is there any possibility that this confused the script into deleting parts of my home directory when it was cleaning up after itself?
Is doubtful that it would remove anything other than what was on your
windows drive.

NEVER mount a real windows drive as drive_c. This will not help wine
and it will end up breaking your windows install.
