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 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.
