    Ok, so, I just found out today that my the hard drive of my mac computer is destroyed! I am soooo upset! Some of the stuff is replaceable (all my research on weddings through this website and more), but, more valuable things like my pictures from the last 6 or 7 years of my life are GONE!!! I can't believe it!! I know it's all my fault because I didn't back up my stuff....but it still hurts!!! Anyone have any suggestions?

        Hey Rhonda! The SAME thing happened to me, so I gave my laptop to a guy I work with and he was able to salvage it (as a matter of fact I am on it now). I told him that if the computer was shot I can handle that, but I wanted to at least be able to get my pics off of there. He worked his magic and was able to get it so that I could get on here and at least get my pics. So over the weekend I took all of my pics and put them on CDs...do you have a tech guy at work or anything that may be able to look at it? I think Scott ended up getting some converter thing that he used to get into my computer from his desktop...I am totally computer dumb, so I don't realyl know all the details. But use who you know and see if anyone can help you out!

              This happened to me too Like an above post i had them salvage whatever they could which cost me a pretty penny, but i was able to get some pictures and music and some important documents. It was worth it for me...if it is for you, i would suggest trying and if they can't at least you tried.

                  Thanks for all your responses! It helps to hear others with the same problem.
                  My FI took it to the apple store on Monday, then, they sent it to an outside computer company. The guy said he's seen this a lot with my version of macbook. He said I could send it to another high-end company, but, it will cost at least $1700! I'm willing to try anything and even spend a little $$ just to get those pics back, but, that seems a little outrageous. I feel so helpless when it comes to computers! (oh, btw, i'm on my work computer right now :)

                      It's a macbook (not pro). Got it new in 2006.
