    I need some advice. Yesterday, I reinstalled leopard, as I was having errors, and random problems. I backed everything up fine, however I forgot an important /.hidden file I had with some bank data :(

    The machine was on a time machine backup.

    Any chance to get it back some how? Would time machine back, it up? Any program that may allow me to get it back if it is still on the drive? I just did a standard quick erase before installing osx again.

    Thanks, hope I can get this back.:eek:

    I figured it out. Just do the command in terminal that allows you to see hidden files. Then restore it, simple. Thanks for nothing :p
