Alright guys, I know this is a mark of my idiocy but here's the story. -While transferring files to my FTP server via Filezilla I decided to delete a regular folder that had some junk .php files that I was editing. I must not have been very careful, because it turns out that I must have deleted my harddrive folder (coincidentally with the same name) via this program. There were no warning messages, and none of it went to the trash. -I freaked out, and the next morning I took it to the Genius bar at the apple store, and they suggested I use Data Rescue 3. -I cloned my hd and ran the program. -It recovered a few pieces, but the essential ones can't be found. (Screenwriter scripts). -Should I now take it to a technician to do a data recovery through my cloned hd or am i SOL? I don't care about the rest because those I can always get... it's the scripts that I've been writing that I need. I usually back my stuff up every few weeks, and these are brand spanking new.
