Blue Regions of Death

Hi Guys

I'm thinking I'm dead in the water on this but thought I'd check in here.

I have a Mac, running Pro Tools 9 M-Powered.

I save my sessions / files to two external hard drives, "Recording," and "Backup Recording."

The idea was to have an exact copy on each of the drives.

Last night I had been recording and saving to the "Recording" drive.
When I finished for the night, I manually dragged the entire session folder over to the "Backup Recording" drive.

A prompt asked if I wanted to overwrite the existing file. I said yes.

Today when I call up the session off of either hard drive, there are multiple blue regions, missing audio from the session.

I've tried re-linking (manually, auto) and searching my computer / external hard drives for the files and they've vanished.

I'm guessing that some of the audio files existed ONLY on the "Backup Recording" hard drive. When I overwrote the file, these audio files were deleted forever.

Do I have any recourse on retrieving those deleted files? Can my "Back up Recording" external hard drive be manipulated to return to its previous state before the overwrite?

Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions.

Try some sort of data restoration software. I've had luck with Data Rescue 4. If the deleted files haven't been overwritten, you might be able to recover them. Good luck!
