If so, I really suggest to put most of them (ones that you don't have to use at the moment) to a different location. It is very understandable that an old game will crash when trying to even partly load 625 files at once!
Not being the web site administrator for this Forum, with over 14 years of its existence, so you may not be aware that one of the things I have done is to create a distribution system for Gruntz that includes a "Gruntz Extraz" DVD containing (essentially) the contents of the entire Forum. True Gruntzerz know that puzzlez are stored in a 'cUstOm' (case insignificant) folder under Gruntz. Without documenting where else I may have stored thingz, a neophyte would have a tough time finding that old Trouble In The Tropicz puzzle by Bjarni with 2 planes! (I once tried to figure out how he did it, but other things in life got in the way, and I never finished that task.) So I keep everything pristine, in case someone (probably new to Gruntz) want to acquire all of the puzzlez possible without having to download them one at a time. Also, every puzzle has its own folder (under the Designer's folder) containing as much supporting information as I have available: walk-through (if such exists); Statz Page image; map image(s), etc. I also try to have a copy of the original (kept up-to-date) Announcement when it was released. In other words, I have tried to save everything required to completely recreate the utility of this Forum. I am in my 10 year "bonus period" ... "three score and ten, and by virtue of strength, ten more", so realize I am mortal,and someone else may need to take over to continue supporting this great (largely non-violent) puzzle gaem.
