    Ok, so I'm troubleshooting an external hdd for a friend. She says she was copying stuff to it when her cat turned off the powerstrip it was plugged into. Eeep.

    Anyway, now many of what I'm assuming used to be folders appear as Unix Executables under OS X. Many of these files are the same size (e.g. 1.25GB for the ones containing MP3s). The drive is FAT32, so I tried it under XP and the folders show up as empty. However, in OS X, I am unable to correct what I'm guessing are stripped-off resource forks.

    Does anyone know of any utilities which might help me recover these files? Remember, it's FAT32 drive, so HFS-only utils do me no good.

    Any help is much appreciated.
