First the hardware: MacBook 3,1 Santa Rose Intel 2.20 Ghz SATA: FUJITSU MHY2160BH 149.05 GB Journaled HFS+ I recently reinstalled OS X, and before doing so I used Disk Utility of the install disc to earse the HD (the security option i chose was "don't erase data") I want to recover some files from my old user (Music & Picutres folder in home) so I got Disc Rescue II and did a scan. DSII found the folders so how do I go about restoring them? Will I need an external drive that is atleast the same size as the files I want to recover? I have over 40GB of music but only a 8GB thumb drive.. Will it be possible for me to get my files back? Thanks in advance!
