And, overnight, most of my files reappeared during a chkdsk. Not even GetDataBack could find them, but chkdsk did the trick.

This is some freaky shit.

Sup hardware problems.

(Macs use the same kinds of hard drives and have the same sorts of recovery tools - which, in Windows XP's case, worked.)

I bought myself an external hard drive and am planning on doing weekly backups.

Be wary: Chkdsk may think that they're all back, but many of them may be incomplete. I lost a lot of mp3s that way, they looked liek they were all back, but they all had chunks missing.

True, that's the way a lot of them are. I'll be torrenting a lot of replacements.

In the meantime, I've bought an external USB/eSATA drive and plan on weekly backups of my storage drive.
