I screwed up and was copying a hard drive so I could reformat it. I used carbon copy cloner, and I copied one partition, and then I used it again to copy another partition. Then I foolishly reformatted the original hard drive before realizing that all I had was the last partition I copied.

Any suggestions on recovering this data? Either off the first hard drive or the one I copied.

QUOTE Thanks

So I have data rescue 3 and was able to recover all of the files from the one I erased. Or at least kind of. I have all of them now "recovered" but the files won't open? They are the correct size but for example if it's a photoshop file it will say photoshop can't open file because it is an invalid document or something.
QUOTE Thanks
