    Hi, I have a problem:
    I have an external drive which I conected to my PC and for some reason it got corrupted (I assume windows at some point try to "fix" the HFS partition) anyway I scaned the shows on OS X as empty, however I scanned the drive with Stellar Phoenix (demo) and the data appears to be intact, however I cannot restore since its a demo, so my question is, is there a "free" or at least reasonably cheap program to get my data back (I think is just a corrupt filesystem, I know programs in windows that can fix that in 5 mins, but after my erased HDD i rather dont plug it again + I dont think it will work with HFS)

    Reminds me of a long time ago when I had an Intel PC running Openstep and I wanted format a drive/partition with a DOS floppy. It wasn't long before the command that was used to format had found my Openstep volumes and decided it was necessary to format those too.

    Lesson learned. Don't let Windows ever see drives you don't want it to corrupt.
