I accidentally hit delete all when trying to delete a specific file. I've lost a couple of days worth before I could stop it. Now I reckon my camcorder isn't that smart and so hasn't overwritten the files the same as using "secure empty trash". It uses a DOS format drive so I think the files are still there, they've just been hidden by the system until they get overwritten, and the good news is I switched it off and haven't used it since.
I tried showing all hidden files using the terminal but nothing new comes up.
I'm using a MacBook with 10.5 Leopard but can use Panther or OS9 if need be.
