    Diskwarrior 3.03, Norton Utilities, Disk Utility....

    Are there any other apps out there that might be able to restore my drive? It's a seagate 200gb in an external usb case...

    With DW, it was able to do a virtual of it.. But when I open the folder that I need the most, it shows as an empty folder...
    With Norton, it takes forever to try to do a disk recovery.. It wasn't even half ways and it was already 2 days later...
    Disk Utility is just basically useless.....

    I'm on a PM G4 450mhz 768 megs running 10.3.9 (AGP Graphics edition)... Soon to be for sale....:D

    TIA!!

    is it a hardware or partition map/file system problem? I can't tell from your original post. If it's like...clicking or not spinning up right, you can try freezing it for a half hour or so (really!) and then give it a whirl.
