retrieving files from trash from a dead mac pro
My mac pro is dead...And i need to recover a folder from the trash.
I've pulled the hard drive out of the MP and and plugged it into a external drive to see if i could find the trash folder with finder but i cant see it in users. like this
Is there a way i can view the files and recover them another way?
thanks heaps for any help

Or just Restart and hold the Option Key until you see the choices. Choose the old drive. Then you can go into the Trash, recover the files and put them onto the other HDD (look for it in the Finder Sidebar). Minimally, you can pop them into the Public Folder which you can access without needing to change Write Permissions. Then unplug the old/external HDD and restart back to your regular HDD and move the recovered files to where you want them.

Once the files were unhidden i was able to view the MP OSX trash folder from my MBP from a external HD.
The file i wanted wasn't there. Which is weird because i'm sure i hadn't empty the trash. There wasn't a lot of files in the trash. Again which is weird because i'm sure i hadn't emptied the trash in a while.
Oh well at least i learnt something. I'd never used Terminal till today.
