    I was just about to burn a cd to back up some files. I put them all on the cd (didn't click burn yet) and then I deleted them off my computer, and the clear my trash can. I went to burn the cd and realized I had made a bad mistake. It still shows the alias' on the cd folder. Is there any way I can get the files out of the alias? Or am I too far screwed and have to get a recovery program?

    I'll give the Data Rescue a shot. I try to open the alias it says "The alias "xx" could not be open because the original files can't be found." Then gives me the option to delete alias, or fix it. If I fix it, it doesn't do anything because theres not original files.
