Please help.

I have today been experimenting with some back up solutions (just using automator - copy and replace file from one to the next). Now I have a what is a pretty valuable folder missing. Both the original, on the Imac hard disk, and on my back up firewire drive?

I have searched for this folder in spotlight, on my whole system with no luck. It was not in trash either.

Applications I was running during this process include safari, mail, limewire, but they do not appear to have affected anything.

If anyone can tell me what I can do next, I would love their input.

Thanks in advance

I've been messing around with MoRU - its an indepth search app, which searches alot deeper than Spotlight.

30 day free trial from http://www.windstormsoftware.com/wssw/index.html

Might help you find it

i have just tried data rescue II. Very good at scanning the my drives and easy to use.

Only problem I have now is that I have to pay $99 in the hope that my lost folder is in there. I will think about it
