Norton Disk Doctor can probably recover the lost image. Do you have a copy?

The chances of recovery of deleted files is best the sooner you do it. The bits are still there; when you delete a file, what you are really doing is freeing up the location for some other file to write over it.

To avoid overwriting the deleted file, don't install any software until you have tried to recover it. If you are borrowing a copy of Norton Disk Doctor to make the recovery attempt--run Norton from the CD (rather than first installing it to your hard drive).

What you should be looking for (when trying to make the recovery) is the original Toast download. Any file image created from that download was stored only in RAM--and is therefore gone for good. But you should be able to recreate the file image from the original Toast download (if that file can be recovered).

Disk recovery tools wont help you. If you erased the contents of the mounted disk image, theyre gone. Nothing you can do about it.
