Not sure this belongs in this forum but there isn't an older OS forum here (maybe there should be?):
Where do I find OS9 Freeware/shareware/commercial software anymore? I am still using OS9.1 on my old PowerBook 3400 and having a hard time finding any software on the net. Does anyone have a collection of it somewhere on the web? I have searched for several days.
I am especially looking for drive recovery software as I lost a partition and some data stored there and I would like to recover it without having to plug the drive into an OS X machine to do it. I have tried Tech Tool Pro, Norton and some other ones and they find nothing.
I found Data Rescue II:
and it seems to have rave reviews but it costs $100! More than any OS 9 machine is worth! Anyone have a used copy they want to sell? eBay has very little OS 9 software anymore.
I had a similar hard drive partition crash on my old 333MHz PC and was able to recover the data with a great little piece of software called Test Disk:
which is available for many OSs, including OS X but, alas, not OS9.
