How does one recover an HFS+ partition? It's been formatted as NTFS, but so far as I know, it hasn't been booted, so the files should be mostly intact. Is there any HFS+ partition data recovery for this? I just want to recover all files from the formatted HFS+ partition, what should I do? Your assistance would be helpful.- Olivia

Mac computers consist of local partitions or logical drives, and their most popular file systems are HFS (Hierarchical File System, is also referred to Mac OS Standard) and HFS+ (it is also called Mac OS Extended). With the introduction of OS X 10.6, Apple dropped support for formatting or writing HFS disks and images, which remain supported as read-only volumes. That means, in nowadays, most important data and files exist in HFS+ partition. But sometimes it happens that your HFS+ partition becomes inaccessible and you have to recover the lost HFS+ partition data.
