    Hey Everyone,
    I was writing files to an external hard drive that was NTFS using NTFS-3G by MacFuse. However, I closed the macbook lid and it went to sleep and I unplugged the drive. Then, when I opened it back up again, it said it wasn't unmounted properly and now all my files are gone on the drive!!

    However, there are only 58 gigs worth of files showing on the drive, but it says there are 132 GB used. So I am guessing the files are still on it, just not showing up. Is there a way for me to see these or access them.

    Please help, it is very valuable files!

    Data Rescue 2. I see a couple people on the forums recommend it, but have never used it myself.

    Data Rescue 2 is very good.

    Next time, unmount and remove the disk before putting the computer to sleep.
