HI all


A question should be a doddle for you guys but I'm a newbie to both Mac and Hackintosh so I'm sure

you're all way ahead of me!


I have Logic Pro running (very well) under Snow Leopard on a (quick!) Acer box. For reasons unexplained I put 

all my music work files on a USB for safekeeping (!) Now this has become corrupted and the OS cannot see

the files.


I have tried an assortment of Mac recovery softwares but either they get half way and then ask for money, or

look like they work but then don't.


Anybody know of a good reliable file recovery package for Snow Leopard which I can download as a freebie?


Ta, you guys are great.

The only freebie I know that works well is PhotoRec. It's a console app that supports HFS+ and the other common filesystems but it's limited on what it can recover. See: http://www.cgsecurit...red_By_PhotoRec


If what you're trying to recover isn't on there then you might be out of luck.

You need to launch this from Terminal, for example after downloading and unpacking:

sudo ~/Downloads/testdisk-7.1-WIP/photorec
