View Full Version : Can't see datas in my home directory

04-30-2008, 05:25 AM

Before reformatting my MacBook (OS 10.5.2), I created a spareimage of my Users directory (which is normally encrypted) using SuperDuper.
After reinstalling the system, I mounted the sparseimage, but my home directory (/Users/ratak) is empty, as I can't see any file, although the sparseimage is 56GB big.
While searching the image. I found a directory .ratak.sparsebundle in /Users/.ratak. It contains loads of 8 megs files with iterative names.

Has anyone of you an idea on what the problem is and how I can recover my datas ? If the image is this big, it should contain all my files !

Note : While searching the forum, I came across this thread : http://shirtpocket.com/forums/showthread.php?p=15272. Unfortunately, when I try this method, my Mac still says the directory doesn't exist.

Thank you

Did you do this while you were logged into the FileVault account?
