To add on to what is turning out to be a utterly miserable week my Powerbook’s hard drive crashed last night. It’s been acting a bit wonky for a few days but I thought it was a recent update Apple pushed out. Not so! I’ve been able to access certain files now and then but it seems to be failing randomly.
I keep the vast majority of my important stuff on my server which gets backed up regularly but there are a few things I’ll miss if I can’t get the data back off my Powerbook.
So, Apple’s sending a box and when I’ve exhausted all my options I’ll send the Powerbook to them and they’ll give me a new hard drive. Tonight I’m going to try the “freezer trick” in the hopes I can access the drive for the 5 minutes I’ll need.
