    This is rely stupid buy i deleted all my movies instead of an old word document and now I need a way to pull them from the trash. I stopped using my comp. the second I realized i did it so they should still be intact. But i haven't been able to find free program that lets you pull things from the trash. I have seen some, Data Recovery X 2, but it costs 100$. I have no more money after getting my new mbp, I rely need some free software for this.

    He doesn't have $100 to buy a file recovery tool, i very much doubt he's got a time machine backup and if he did would he be on here looking for a miracle?

    Sorry dude, there's no opensource or freeware tool for file recovery on Mac.

    You're either going to have to stump up the cash or accept the fact you made a bonehead mistake.

    Wish it was better news.

    if you bought them on iTunes can't you just emailing them explaining your situation? most of the time they'll put things back on your "check for purchases" if something has happened.

    Data Rescue 2 does a good job at recovering data. Not free, though.

    No, you're not supposed to ask that on the forum, and people aren't supposed to answer it.

    Based on that question, you deserve to lose your movies. Did you rip those off too?

    You lost movies you were to cheap to buy and know you're too cheap to buy recovery software?
