The Hard Drives' Graveyard

By way of updating the previous post, I imagine my MacBook’s hard drive ended up somewhere like this around 1:45 p.m. fortunately, I’ve been using Mozy to back-up the stuff that’s absolutely essential. So, I haven’t lost anything that’s absolutely irreplaceable.

Fortunately, when I bought this one I got the extended care plan, which I almost never do. But for a purchase like this, especially for something I’m going to use pretty heavily, It’s worth it. The guy at the Clarendon Apple store said they could replace the hard drive at no charge, because of that. Unfortunately, they had to order the hard drive, which means the computer should be ready by Monday.

Hopefully I can hold out until then.


  1. A Betetr investment would be an external hard drive. They have saved my bacon many times.

  2. True. I have one one my desk at home. Since the MacBook hard drive has been replaced without charge (they called today to say it was ready) I may buy a portable external hard drive when I pick it up.

  3. I’m glad you got your hard-drive replaced at no cost. Those can be quite pricey.

  4. I’m glad you had at least some sort of backup! I hope everything is back to normal (or as close as possible) soon!
