My ipod was rebooting every 5 secs, so i thought i should erase it with Disk Utilities then restore it from itunes. As the ipod was constantly rebooting, on my disks list it kept appearing and disappearing. As i have all my external devices set to the same icon, when of one of the reboots that the ipod disappeared of the list i accidentally clicked my 500gig external hardrive and erased it. Unfortunately i have no backup image to restore it from with Disk Utilities. I have tried a couple of restore applications, VirtualLab, Disk Salvage, Data Rescue and Boomerang, and the hardrive is practically intact, my problem is that i don't have any spare 350gig <that is the amount of space actually used> to restore the data to, so my question is if there's a way to just undo the erase. I'm on Tiger 10.4.1 Another question would be, I have a folder with several thousands of aif and wav files, that when i run any of the restore applications i mentioned are recognized but are not named properly, instead they're numbered.. would there be a way to restore these files with their original names? Thank you in advance for any attention.
