I made the mistake of erasing my storage partition for all my Mac OS files on my external hard drive while creating a system image for restoring my Windows 7 partition. Now my problem is to recover the erased data from the Mac OS Extended Journal storage partition that I had on my external hard drive.

So far I have only been able to come by software that can recover only Windows-based format partitions (i.e. NTFS, exfat, etc.).

Can someone help me find a good viable software for restoring Mac OS Extended Journal partitions?

Google Disk Drill. Several members here have tried it and seem to like it. I also have it, but I haven't put it through the paces.

You might also look at Data Rescue 3. It currently runs $99 US. and there is a demo available. IIRC the demo does not actually recover files but can give you an idea which files it is likely to be able to recover.

Another recommendation for Data Rescue, a very capable application.

Yes, just bought this and started running it. Hopefully, this works out well.

Thank you!

A suggestion is to start working on a backup strategy as well :-)

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?
