A friend gave me a hard drive that came out of her Apple desktop computer and I only have PC's. I have programs that save data from corrupt PC drives all the time. It is a 500 GB WD SATA drive and spins up fine. I booted Puppy Linux and only see a small 200 mb partition that is vFat - not even sure what that is. Anybody have any advice on how I can help or does this need to go to a shop that can deal with the Mac OS x side. The Apple store could not help her, so I don't know what they already tried or if they made matters worse.
