Here is my question: Does anyone know how I could repair a HFS+ partition from a windows machine? If you want to read the rest, it just outlines my situation. Thanks for any help. I reformatted my external drive to HFS+ using macdrive. I did this because I will be getting a powerbook soon and will be leaving my windows machine. Anyway, my computer froze a couple of times while reading from the external drive (a week after moving all of my music over to the new file system). The next day I noticed 30GB of music missing. There are no artists after "The Melodians" anymore in my music folder. When I view the properties of the music folder it shows around 100GB where it used to say 130GB. When I view the space of the drive as a whole, the 30gigs are taking up space, but I can't find them anywhere - I added up the sizes of all the folders and the shown free space and the 30gigs of music aren't accounted for.
