celeste's backup partition was the same size as eliot's had been: 20gb, even though celeste has a much bigger drive. last night i discovered celeste has outgrown that partition, so tonight i repartioned the backup drives -- forgetting that the leftover chunk is where we keep all the music (all 60gb of it).

so.... does anyone know of a free data recovery tool or partion-undoer or unix magic for mac os x? i haven't touched the disk since i repartioned it, so i know all that data is still there, invisible. how do i get it back?

Comments:
Oh, crap!

Yes, there's disk recovery stuff you can use. The all-time champion is DiskWarrior. I had a hardware failure and DiskWarrior did not recover my lost data, while it was able to repair the drive; but you have not had a hardware failure, and I am confident it would recover your data without trouble.

It isn't cheap but it is available as a download, and they'll send the physical disk in the mail later, so you can recover now.

It's what I'd use in your situation, and I'd do it as quick as I could, to avoid writing over any of the data and screwing up the file structure before you can recover it.

Good luck!
 
nothing for free or cheap? or will this be a $100 mistake? *winces*
 
Sadly, I don't think there's a free or cheap solution here. But do ask mph, who knows more about this sort of thing than I do.
 
i was hoping he might comment, or that michaelmas or alex might have something to say.
 
i don't see anything free. this article is from Nov 03. this is right after the firewire 922 fiaso and there's no mention of free utilities then either.

alas, disk warrior was a wasted purchase: if your directory isn't damaged, it won't find files for you.

so i had to buy file salavage, too. ouch. it looks like it's working, but i haven't been back to the studio yet to see how well, or see how itunes handles re-importing them.
