Hi all,

What is the possibility to retrieve stuff that has been trashed?

Have tried Norton, Techtool Pro and nothing seems to be there!?!

Would it be anything to do with installing 10.2? When installed the disk was not wiped at all, and all the filed that were there are still on the drive.

I think you're saying that you deleted some files, then installed OS X on the same drive. Am I correct? If so, then you likely won't be able to recover your lost files because OS X probably wrote over the parts of the disk where you old files used to be. If that's the case, there's no way you can get your files back.
