    Hi All,
    I hope someone on here can help.
    I recently had a HDD creash on my MB pro. I'm using Mavericks and when my new HDD arrives any day now I will reinstall.
    I managed to copy the programmes I use on the Windows virtual machine (with Parallels).

    However, when I ''right click'' with the Mac to show what is in those files I can't see the content so I'm not sure if the content has been saved or if it's just not showing. Sadly, as is often in these cases, I didn't do an up to date back-up because I didn't think a 2 year old MB pro would crash so dramatically.

    I managed to access the files and save them to an external Drive with the help of Disk Warrior.
