[OT] Plea for help

I used Disk Warrior with great success many times in the OS9 
days; not sure if they still are around under OSX.

I have also had success with "Data Rescue" from Prosoft 
Engineering. It doesn't 'fix' the disk, but scans the disk and 
copies off files it finds to a second disk (so you need another 
disk of equal or larger size). Takes a long time but recovered 
stuff from a severely damaged disk.

Hope that helps!
