managing saved patterns

I've been using GIMP about 8 years, but have little formal ART training so I didn't know if my question was basic, I also couldn't find any other previous related posts (hopefully I used the right search terms) .... sorry.

I have been creating a lot of my own pattern files the last few weeks and not having any problems, I noticed yesterday that as I add new patterns older saved patterns are being deleted (or replaced??). I've never had this problem before, but I'm using an older laptop spare laptop right now. I can't figure out how to fix the pattern saving problem though.

I believe the problem is not enough space in my personal GIMP file folder. Do you think that's the problem?

How do I fix it? It doesn't look like Windows 7 will let me set folder sizes, so if a bigger file folder is the solution how can I accomplish that?

RE: managing saved patterns
That explains why I couldn't find any help making the file folder bigger! GRIN.

Your solution makes a lot of sense to me, I wanted to use my patterns in place of a palette for the project at hand and having them in the GIMP pattern window seemed like a good solution. But, I see I can simply open the folder file in windows and show the patterns as thumnails .... you're very smart. Thanks a ton ofnuts, I'll be looking for more advice.
