OK I had my main 9 gig micropolis drive in my 9500 suddenly go unreadable by the system and now I can't get it back. The disk is still recognizeable by formatting utils like Apple disk setup and FWD HDT, but it won't mount and generally won't do anything beyond this. I have tried Disk Warrior (hang on step 5) I have tried Data Rescue and it says each block is bad as it scans, I have tried DRT but it just gives gibberish for files to recover. I havnt tried Norton yet. I tried Tech Tool Pro 2, but the tests seem to all pass ok.
I cringe at spending a lot of money on Data Recovery places, but this may be only alternative.
Anyone have any suggestions or experience with this?
This is the first drive crash I have had that I couldnt recover the files from.
