I am unable to boot into the OS, so I am going to format my drive and re install the OS. But, before I do that I have some files that I need to get off from my Music and Pictures folder. I have the latest OS X, so how can I get these off. I have an external hard drive so the only part left is getting to the files.
Before I get grilled for not backing up my documents, I want to say I did, I just forgot about the files in my PSD ( i know of all files to forget).
So I sent my laptop in for repair, comes back they have done a clean install of windows.
I got my laptop back this morning and when i started to transfer my back up files back over i remembered that i forgot to back up my PSD files. Is there any chance of recovering them after a reinstallation of windows? with my knowledge the answer would be no, correct? Hopefully there is some lifesaver out there that knows how to get them back. Awaiting replies and hoping for the best.
I had to do a recovery using F11 as my system would not boot up. It would constantly say it was restartin with he spinning ping pong balls but would not load. Why it crashed is moot at this point.
I run Windows 8.1 and am using a HP15-f039wm.
I saved my files as a backup before continuing with the recovery. As it stands now the thumb drive which has been copied to my desktop has a folder named "System Recovery Files". There is no .exe file that I can locate within.
Specifically my concerns are two:
1) I purchased a subscription to Avast and wonder if I can reinstll, not sure where my license key is but could probably contact Avast. 2) I downloaded Mozilla's Thunderbird and have emails and contacts from a variety of email accounts and one account in particular I no longer have access to.
The $64,000 question is: can I get these programs working again with what I saved?
I have bought HP Pavilion dv6t-7000 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC on last year August. Yesterday while I was working on my Laptop It was restarted and Bios (setup) screen was shown. After this when I try to boot my laptop it shows blank (black) screen forever (no errors shown).
When I diagnose my laptop, I got Hard Drive Short DST Failure . I have called HP service center and they were telling to replace the hard drive.
But I have some many important files and documents in my laptop. is it possible to recover my files using some method?

I'm a PC user, and one of my friend has a Mac book. Recently he lost his data and ask me to recover his data for him but I'm not good at Mac. So, do you guys know how to easily recover all his data? What are the best software to do that?
I' ve been using a pc forever. Looking at a Macbook Pro 13" or smaller. How easy is it to transfer files from a pc to mac? I use ACT for contract tracking software and want to use it on the new MAC as well. I have word docs. I get files sent to me in word too.
When I go away for work travel, I need to have access to my PST files that I bring along. On my old T60, I used a cracked version of Outlook 2k. It was clunky, but did the job. Are there any Mac-based programs that will let me view my PST files and pull out any attachments or emails I may need?
I recently uninstalled VM fusion. Probably not correctly. Being used to a mac all i did was drag and drop the icon to the trash. Then i realized it still was somewhat on the computer. So i manually deleted it folder off the harddrive. However there are 4 files it cant delete because they are in use , and when i right click on a rar file it still says "extract with winrar - windows xp pro 2- vm ware fusion" It's getting annoying.
I have a 250Gb Maxtor Harddrive which is 2.5" and formatted as FAT32 (so I'm able to use it on my Mac and work PC), I have roughly 100Gb worth of research documents on there already which I constantly update every fortnight. Just recently I tried to copy some video files onto the harddrive but it doesn't seem to work?
A few problems, it wouldn't copy as the little box always said 'preparing to copy' but never did anything so I kept restarting my Macbook untill it finally would copy and now it has copied over but I don't see the files on the harddrive?
i need some recommendations on what to use to unzip/unrar files on my new mac. i heard the unarchiver is good but it wouldn't extract any of my password protected .rar's that i downloaded online. im using unrarx right now but i hate how it start extracting before prompting me for a password.
I've got my Vista computer and OS X computer on the same network. I set up Mac's file sharing via SMB. So I can see my entire Mac HD from my Vista computer now. I tried transferring some files to it, and it was incredible slow, around 170kbps. I know there's ways to transfer much faster than this, so maybe I'm doing something wrong.
The MacBook is wired to the router, while the Vista is wireless. At the moment I don't have an extra ethernet cable.
Double-clicking files in the Finder under Snow Leopard launches applications associated with the types of the files regardless of which applications used to create those files. I like it but I can see why those users who have been using Mac for 2 decades hate it. Other than that it forces one to adopt a new habit, I think it makes sense both conceptually and practically to ignore creator codes for most users.
is it possible to transfer pdf or powerpoint files from your computer to the ipad and then use the ipad to read them. By pdf files i mean like school syllabi, research papers, etc. As a student, I am looking for an alternate to using my laptop to read such material, and if the ipad fits these needs, I would like to purchase one.
So I got the blinking folder with a question mark when the macbook tries to boot up. A quick google search said something about missing boot files and booting from a CD.
The macbook wasn't bought new from Apple and I don't have the install CD that came with it. Can I use the install CD from another macbook? If so, is there a stipulation as to which version of OS X install CD I can use?
I can't and don't remember what version of OS X I have on the computer that is having problems. Is there a way to find out?
I picked up a 320 GB HDD at walmart. It is USB which I know will work fine. What format does it have to be formatted in so I can copy the files from the mac running Leopard to a Windows machine running Vista?
i had a few glitches while browsing the web and reading my tutorials on acrobat reader...the temperature has been going quite hot recently remaining in the 70's, sometimes going more and rarely in the upper 60's....do you think this is a dying gpu?
I am trying to copy some dmg files from my mbp to an external hard drive (a western digital 1tb essential, and a 250gb wd passport). I get this "error code 0" when I try to copy the files larger than 4gb. Now I heard that this is because it is a fat32 drive or something like that. Is there a way to fix this without buying a different hard drive?
I just bought an apple Time Capsule and started using it last night, router and switch works great, but can I use that as an external harddrive, because I tried to transfer files from my laptop to time capsule but it always gives me errors saying that the device is disconnected and whatnot. Anyone got any words on how to use it as an external harddrive freely? By the way, I use it on my Windows 7.
