I've heard a lot about this massive data loss bug from the original version of Leopard - you know, when you move (not copy) a folder from one volume to another, then click cancel before it has finished, and then "poof" it's disappeared in both locations.
Well, joy of joys, I am running 10.5.2 and this still seems to be a problem. I was moving my partner's iTunes Library from a PC DOS drive (plugged internally into my G4) to the local drive. Stupidly I chose "move" instead of "copy" but also decided to change my mind, cancel it and copy instead (ironically) for security purposes. And guess what, all the data went "poof" and it is now not on either drive.
Luckily for us, everything was backed up about a week ago. But this is still a pretty horrendous bug yes??
Is there any way to retrieve such data, or shall I just get the backed up files?
Is this a known bug? Should I inform Apple?
