Any way to recover files after "Image Restore"?
My trusty iBook G4 that I've had no trouble with for the past 7 years was just hijacked by the OSX Leopard operating system from another network - long story on how it happened, but the short story is that I don't know what to do!
I work at a university and the IT folks tell me that all my stuff from the past 7 yrs is gone - is this true?? Is there any way to recover it??
I would try other means before using a recovery program--once you start that you are done. If you need the computer now I would remove the hard drive and replace it with another to minimize any write-over of your data. In the mean time we need more data so please answer mayers questions as this will help us plan the next step.
There are free software that can help you... just google search "file recovery". If this cannot help then you can always fork out about $1000 to have it professional done.
This FREE software has done wonders for my customers on several occasions. Go here http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk However, if this doesn't work for you then you'll have to fork out some big bucks to get what you want.
