The most crucial thing is to not write anything new to the drive including things like: downloading files from the net (including demo's of utilities), copying files, saving new files to the hard drive you are trying to recover files from.

Since you are using OS I would suggest using
Micromat's Techtool Pro 4

or

Prosoft's Data Rescue II

I have had success with both, but the recovery process is a bit different than it was back in the OS9/Norton Utilities days as often times the names of files are not preserved when you recover files. Also, FYI - Norton Utilities or Norton System Works is apparently no longer supported by Symantec.

Hope this helps,
jason

Oh BTW, each of the apps I mentioned in the previous post require a significant amount of time to scan the drive so be prepared to wait a while.
