I'm not sure where this topic fits, so please move if not appropriate.
My son damaged his mac beyond repair, so I took out the hard drive to recover files for him. Being inexperienced with macs, I inadvertently deleted some of his files (music files of course). I decided the better way to do things was to get software which would read the mac (now external) hard drive on my windows 7 pc, which I did, so I was then able to copy the remaining files to my computer. However, there still is the issue of the deleted files, which I would like to recover if possible.
I started looking at software (I'd like something free as this is a one-time operation), but then I realized I didn't know if I could find a program that would work on my pc to recover deleted files on a mac hard drive. So my question is:
Will pc data recovery software recover deleted files on a mac external hard drive? (if so, is there any such software available for free?)
Or, is the only way to do this is to get mac software and use a mac to recover deleted files from the mac external hard drive?
Or, is there another solution I haven't thought of?
