My Mac OS X 10.5.8 hard drive failed and cascaded onto the Hitachi hard drive, how can I recover my photos?
We took the hard drive to the Apple store and the Apple genius said, "it's is not a virus or a worm, sometimes this just happens". They took the drive and kept it for over a week and were unable to restore anything. We bought a new hard drive and it's like having an empty sketch book.
I would appreciate any suggestions on how to restore Aperture and iPhoto on my old hard drive so I can salvage my library of images from the past 3 1/2 years. This is a difficult loss for me. Several years ago I lost several large paintings that were stored in a basement that flooded.
Peace and happy holidays,
