I really need your help here guys. I have the feelin I am screwed. I have a G4/400/OS9.1. I was using 'Silverlining pro' to format a hardrive in HSF+ format, that went fine. I then did the same to my other hardirve after copying everthing off that to the just formated one.
That also went fine, so I deleted any duplicates I had on the 2 drives, so no backup ( now I feel completely stupid for that).
When I reformatted these drives I selected the option to update the dirver. So I guess that the hardrives are using Lacie drivers, I got this from a menu box at startup 'happy mac' screen, telling me that I am using 'Silverling' drivers. I restarted and rebuilt the desktop file cause some file icons where distorted and last time I rebuilt it, it fixed the problem. Everything was sweet till......
........I put my mac to sleep. When I woke it up it was frozen so I used the restart button. When it booted up agian it said I needed to format one of the hardrives. This is the drive with my documents, the one that is started up form is fine.
The drive that is needed to be 'initalize' is formated and actually has another copy of the system files on it.
So what I was to know is there any possible trick to gettin the drive to show up on the desktop? Putting the drive in a 'windows' machine with a mac drive translator or something, just to get the info off then reformat the drive agian. ( I found a Widows app that would recognise mac formmated drives, but that could just be floppys) I know I am asking the impossible, but all I need is for it to appears once so I can get the data off.
Please let me down genetaly, when you say 'Yeah your screwed'^_^
