DataRescueII is in the process of restoring whatever it can salvage, which only appears to be ~10% of what was lost.
needless to say, I’m really pretty mad at myself and my irresponsible fingers.
any reliable data recovery packages hanging around for OS X that someone can recommend? that’d be sweet.
follow up (4 hours later): Data Rescue II worked surprisingly well. Of course, it didnt bring back everything, but it did manage to bring back 20 full length movies, and a handful of episodes of “Dinosaurs”.
That said…it brought back some stuff that I’ve never seen before. Unfortunately nothing TOO interesting, albeit, kinda weird.

That’s right, various “swallows”. Totally work safe, too.
I havent watched all of them, but all told, there’s about 10-15 minutes of THAT, that came off my hard drive. data recovery software couldnt bring back season 1-5 of scrubs though, could it :-(.
