Use Disk Utility to repair FAT32 formatted disks
Authored by: greck on Sep 13, '04 01:26:39PM
...and do it when nothing else will. After several days of trying to recover 250 GB of irreplaceable data with Windows (only briefly) and Linux, I mounted the disk in a 1394 enclosure and was able to to lift an image off and salvage 100% of the data with my PowerBook.

Now I don't even bother with Windows and Linux tools... just a WiebeTech ComboDock and my Mac.

Use Disk Utility to repair FAT32 formatted disks

I specifically use their product and personally love it. I'm starting to look for a ribbon "extension" (m/F) type cable as I think it would be easier/quicker to plug in drives (my only complaint -- bent a pin on one drive). It's too easy to mount Windows boxes to harvest data for migration (my use of it :).

I also found the cheapest method for long term storage: hard drives. Go buy a couple of 80G drives and archive data as necessary for quick/easy access. Duplicate for redundancy as usual. :)
