    it's possible.. all i know is you want to turn off your computer and not do anything with it until you're ready to do the procedure... so turn off the comp an head off to the library for assistance.

    there is a utility program that retreives stuff you delete, but i don't know the name or whether it works for mac or not. go on a website that sells computer software and look through the utilites section.

    Help is at hand!

    Are you running Mac OS 9 or X?
    Either way you need Norton Utilities.
    There is a tool within this which is called "Unerase"
    Use hotline or something.
    -You can get hotline from tucows.com and you can use a filesearch servicehere.
    If you get super stuck hit my email. Good luck!

    yeah...Norton's the tip. don't save anything on your computer. start up your machine using the Norton disk.

    Norton's saved me on multiple occasions.

    btw, i wasn't kidding about not using your comp... everything you erased leaves digital tracks of sorts and the more you use the comp, the more it covers up those tracks.

    I know mamerro has a ton of helpfull disk tools.

    You should send him an email or something.

    Tell him it's his turn to pass on the favor.

    browner...its not a total loss if you have to use the machine...it just decreases your chances of recovery. if you can still get your hands on that disk do it.

    and yea...mamerro has the most (worst) experience with this. luckily yours isn't as severe.
