    i was importing my HD movies in imovie, and wanted to save them to my external...so i read that i have to reformat in mac os format because imovie doesnt like FAT


    ok, well i compare HDD to imovie, figure hey i must have just made a copy of some of my clips on this external so.....*format*

    i realized about 5 secs later that they were in fact NOT backups and were the real thing, any possible way to fix my stupidity? :o

    There are utilities that can recover deleted stuff. The most important thing is to not write anything at all on the hard drive until you get off to another hard drive whatever you can.

    I haven't had to use one in a long time, so I'm not up to date on what's out there and best to use now.
