I have some questions. OK, so I once again accidentally wrote over a file. It's sort of a long story. To keep it short and simple: During the day I take a lot of notes--I have up to 80 text-edit files open at a time. To save time while saving the files I create a new folder, and just keep hitting return as I save the files. So essentially I have a lot of "Untitled 1, 2, 3 . . . " files in a folder, and in that folder another folder with more of the same, as I keep creating a new folder then quickly saving the documents by hitting return over and over. So, today I started to save the notes, and must not have created a new folder, and I started quickly hitting return and as the computer accepts the return messages in advance of the dialog boxes appearing, I saved over a file, because when the warning came up that I was writing over a a file of the same name (in this case Untitled 6). My first question relates to my attempt to save this file...and since I have already been so lengthy..I will start by JUST asking this question as not to complicate things. I downnloaded a program that says it can undelete files. It is called File Savage ( http://www.subrosasoft.com/OSXSoftware/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1 ) I downloaded the trial version. It scans your hard disk. It found 29,764 files it says are salvageable. I believe it only searched free space, so I assume that a large number of those files must have been from before I initialized my hard disk and reinstalled Tiger. For instance, it says there are 446 encrypted iTunes songs which can be recovered. Since initializing my hard disk and installing Tiger I have not downloaded any iTunes songs. So I figure that MUST be from before I initialized and reinstalled (and apparently zeros weren't written to the hard disk). It says that it found 5,805 RTF files--which is of interest to me, as this file (and ones I have previously accidentally written over) are RTF files. I believe because this is the trial version and not the paid one each file is listed as "File.rtf". Also, I cannot recover them until I pay. So, my question is: is it possible the file I want is one of those? Is there a program to recover said file that is free? THANK YOU!
