    While trying to create a recent backup of my home directory I ran into an issue with 1 Click Backup crashing while trying to remove an older backup folder from external hard drive. The program crashed on 3 attempts. Once I restarted the program and tried to backup again for the 4th time, I noticed that my desktop icons were missing. Digging a bit deeper I found that all my personal documents, pictures and music were missing. A quick restart and found that when logging into my account it greeted me with the first time use welcome screen. Is there anyway of retaining my Home directory that appears to have been deleted by the 1-Click Backup software while trying to remove an older version of a backup on an external hard drive?

    Are there any freeware data recovery applications for Mac?
