I have a HFS HDD that been reformatted. HFS reformat is usually much more devastating to the file system than say NTFS, but with this recovery I get pretty much all the folder structure and file names but the files are all 0KB and do not open. I have not seen this before? I do get a large chunk of data in RAW however.

What program are you working with to recover it?

Tried most of the popular ones to see if anything changes. UFS Pro, R-Studio and some not so popular ones. All give the same result.

I saw an odd case similar to this once where most files all showed as 512Kb size. I think Data Rescue 4 was able to handle it fairly well though.

Data rescue 3 or 4 running on a Mac usually produces the best results in my experience.
