Well, Damn. The silence is encouraging.
I'm not sure how to proceed.
I've looked and looked for any app that claims to recover files from an HFS partition, and the only thing i see is either commercial software, or Testdisk. Testdisk only seems to "discover" deleted partitions and restore them.
I was thinking I would try to use dd to clone the partition first, then make my attempts to recover the data from the image. But I haven't found a single "how-to" or post of any sort that gives me hope for salvaging this stuff.
I know I can get the laptop up and running, my only concern at this point is recovery.
I've used stuff like Easius and Disk Investigator for winblows, and have recovered lots of lost data over the years via various methods...but never on a mac.
The partition is there. It hasn't been accessed since the borkening. What was once 9gb of data on an HFS+ partition is now on 32mb on a New World partition... what I want to recover is wedding photos
Any suggestions at all would help...
