Does anyone have a recommendation for a trusted file recovery program? I bought one from the App Store but its results were less than stellar. It took the app hours to scan the external drive but then crashed when building the directory of deleted files. Now the program won't even show the connected devices, although the Finder can see everything just fine.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Have had luck with data rescue 3. It can take a bit to scan as well, they have a demo though so you can scan and see what it finds before purchase.

Have heard good things about disk drill but don't have any experience with it.

Thanks for your recommendations, Matthew. I have since bought a program called R-Studio (http://www.r-studio.com) and it works as advertised. It's a slow scan as well (7+ hours on a 1.5 Gbyte array) but I guess faster doesn't necessarily mean better. Thanks again.
