    I have been using bootcamp on another harddisk. Last night I want remove windows partition from it, so I opened Boot Camp Assistant. I made mistake and I choose another harddisk that I store my documents using mac which is hfs+ format and choose
    "Erase disk and create a single partition for Windows"
    So boot camp assist formatted my harddrive. I wanna get all data back. So I install Data Rescue II software. After a 3 hour scan (750GB HD), I reached all my files. I can see all the folders and files.
    But when I restored them, and open, mac says files are corrupt. How can that happen? Because it was a really short format at about 3-4 seconds. Also I can see all files (~ 350GB data). Isn't it possiblle to get files?
    I know macrumors' profs are gonna gelp me!!

    Answer !!

    Send e-mail Prosoft Engineering and here is answer:

    "Bootcamp may have reformatted the drive and created a new volume formatted FAT32.

    What you can try doing is using the ABL settings, use of which is referenced in the Data Rescue II
    users' guide section 7.2 page 40.

    Give that a try and let us know how it goes."

    Cut from part 7.2:


    I re-scan and use ABL, settings:

    Blocksize: 4096, Offset:0 and now it WORKS
