I had a 4.2 GB video (made in iMovie) that I was trying to send to iDVD, however, because of all the weird complications with Macs assuming you want to copy a file rather than move it, I decided to put it in the trash folder, so I could move (and not copy) it out of there...seemed logical at the time. However, I realized I couldn't get it out, so I locked it, which is supposed to protect the file from being deleted, and emptied the trash. Now all I have are 393KB of a movie I can't even open.:@ :'( Obviously, something of the file is still there, but is there any way to restore the complete file? Is it necessary to buy some sort of file retrieving software?
Btw, it's on a PowerBook G4.
