Hi, I had a question. My hard drive crashed yesterday and I wanted to know since i can't recover the things on it is there anyway that I can see what was on it through something cataloging it? For example spotlight? or quicksilver? To better explain what I mean, I wanted to like see exactly what folders and such are... were on the external. I know quicksilver and spotlight catalog the drive to find things faster. I wanted to see this catalog to redownload the things on it, i.e. Songs, Programs, Movies, etc, ... Thanks in advance I appreciate any help.

Check this thread out. Paragon Software just released a product called "Paragon Rescue for Mac OS X". It is a bootable CD that can scan for and recover the contents of a corrupted hard disk and restore them to another drive. Sounds like it might be of use to you.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
