    You can try Data Rescue II

    Just don't use your computer to download it... you will be overwriting your files you want to recover
    In fact, don't use your computer at all if you seriously need to recover files
    You will need an external drive to recover your files to

    Then you need to consider getting one :)
    You can use it for a back up drive after this is over ;)
    Seriously...

    Does NOBODY read any more?!? :p

    Post #2!

    Not effectively
    If you download the program, you are writing to the HD (and possibly overwriting the files you want to rescue)
    If you "rescue" files to your HD you are overwriting the files you are trying to rescue

    It is your data... so you can feel free to try!
