    I'm sorry if this has already been posted. I looked for the answer on here and couldn't find it. I NEED HELP...BAD! I have Leopard and I was working in iMovie on a project and when i finished i went to save it and then the color wheel came up for over 5 minutes and then it automatically shut down imovie! i lost the whole project that took me over 5 hours to do! i still have the DV files that i imported, but not the editing that i did! i havent used TIME MACHINE due to the fact that i dont have a external HD. I wanted to know if there was anyway i could get that back! i know windows had a setting that you could go back to a certain time and date on your computer, but im not sure if mac does or if there is anyway i can retrieve the edited version of my movie project that i created! someone please! help me!!! i am in need of assistance and this project is due tommorow! if you can help, please send me a direct email to tony@peppermintsandcigarettes.com i would be in your DEBT! thanks!

    The only way I know how to recover files like that is if they have been saved, then deleted or what not. I'm not sure what you could do...

    I just did this exact same thing. Except I (accidentally) deleted my iMovie project file from my Movies folder. It's a .rcproject. My TM didn't save it. I've already tried Data Rescue II but it doesn't seem to be able to find iMovie project files. What can I do?
