Hey Guys,

I accidentally deleted a file from my iPod (used as an external hard drive) while it was connected to the laptop.

It's not in Trash, can I still recover it ?

It's possible but you'll have to buy a program to do it. I've used a friend's copy of Data Rescue II (http://www.prosofteng.com/products/data_rescue.php) before which worked really well. There are other similar programs but I don't have any experience with them

Edit: Oh and you should stop using your iPod immediately if you want to be able to recover anything. The more stuff that gets written to the hard drive, the less chances you'll have of recovering whatever got deleted.

Agrees with LennyX on Data Rescue II. It can take some time, but it sure is thorough.

It's cheaper if you download it, I believe.
