    My external hard drive suddenly broke on me - the dreaded click of death - and now i am trying to gather as much information as possible about what i had on the drive. I have a slight idea, but i can't really remember everything. So basically what i am wondering, does Mac os x (SL in my case) store some kind of log file (text or similar) with information about what has been moved to external hard drives the past, say, 12 months?
    So say i moved some backup files from one external to another external, would OS X log this? What about from the internal to the external? Maybe even better, would it store some kind of image of what was on the external hard drive at different points?

    If so, where can i locate this file? :)

    Alternatively, i've been trying to figure out if Firefox saves information on downloaded items. I mean, you have the 'Downloads' window, but that only go back so and so much (since i clear it every now and then). I was hoping there might be a file somewhere with the full download history?

    Thanks very much in advance!
