I plugged my external drive into another mac to transfer a folder from one of the partitions to create space. What I did was take the folder and place it in my dock. I believe what I did next, I can't remember, is trash the folder that was in the partition. I then emptied the trash. I noticed that the folder I placed on my dock had a question mark signed. I was like " OHH NO!." I tried to savage the files via FileSavage and I don't believe it was recovered. However, there are a lot of zip files that I haven't checked. The folder has over 20 gigs of video. I remember that I made a clone of the drive that I made the partition for so I mounted it and no luck. The folder is not there. I must of cloned it afterwards. I think I'm out of luck since I also deleted the partition. Is there any other way I can recover these files? Could I be doing something wrong other than the wrong I have already done?
