Humm, it means that the previous cache was *badly* damaged 
(the filesystem check probably deleted these files). 
HTTrack makes its best to recover damaged files, but in 
case of violent power outage, the NTFS consistency might be 
compromised, forcing the system to wipe some files during 
the boot sequence.

(HTTrack regularly flushed its cache to prevent problems, 
in case of crash for example. But the operating system 
itself does not flushes the files immediately, which can be 
very bad.. and the recovery is not always reliable)
