Last night, a friend asked my to give him a copy of a word document. He handed me an external hard drive and left.
I plugged the hard drive into my file server running Windows Server 2003, opened disk management and clicked OK. (I know that in Windows 2003 you need to manually assign a drive letter to external drives.)
I then looked at the drive in disk management and it said that it was unallocated space. I called my friend and he said that there was data on the drive, but he used it with his Mac Book.
Aperantly when I clicked OK in disk management I converted the from HFS+ file system to something else.
Is there any way to undo the disk convert? I immediately removed the drive, so there was no writing to it. Windows did not format the drive, it just converted it. Is the data still there? All the data recovery programs I have are for windows, can they read the Mac file system?
I need to get the data back, what can I do?
