Could you have tried to run 3rd party data recovery tools like Data Rescue? http://www.prosofteng.com/products/data_rescue_update.php
That's a great idea! I'll make sure I order the upgrade for my copy of Data Rescue soon. But since we're planning to record again in another couple of days, there's not enough time to dork around with an unstable 10.7.x waiting for updates to arrive. We need to have the assurance that when we nail a recording, the entire directory structure is not going to disappear.
Nope, Apple doesn't have an uninstaller feature like Windows does for uninstalling Service Packs. The migration from 10.7 to 10.7.1 is one-way. And the migration from 10.6.x to 10.7 is not only one-way, it's more destructive, making a great number of changes and file deletions from the previous version. It's similar to the move from Windows XP to Vista, or from Vista to Windows 7.
Since everyone who upgrades to Lion does it as a download from the App Store, there's no DVD media. But could you have made a bootable USB key?
I had looked into picking up the USB key from an Apple dealer on Monday but they wanted $80, and I've already paid for $29 of that from the initial Lion download. I don't have any blank USB keys to dedicate to this, but I guess I'll take advantage of the back-to-school sales to pick up a couple of spares. There's no reason that Apple should charge $50 for a 4gb-8gb flash drive, since the going rate is $30 for a 16gb drive.
