Hi. I've got an old Mac Plus with an external hard drive I
use for word processing. It has System 6.01 and I am running
Word 4 on it. By accident I trashed some files and emptied the
trash. I have not turned the computer off. I currently have
no utility software.

Is it possible to recover those files and how do I obtain
software and instructions to do it?

Thanks,
Jon Weizenbaum

try loading norton unerase and using that, only the directory structure (the stuff that lets the finder see your data) is deleted when you erase a file, not the data itself.  unerase should be able to pick the data up and build a new structure for it.

i dunno if itll work on system 6... but ill email you my copy of unerase if you promise not to pirate it and throw it away after.
