Yes. My iMac finally ate its hard drive.
I’m reduced to trying to run on a windoze laptop. I’ve lost everything since July 10th, not a disaster, but quite annoying.
Trying to get caught up, recover ping lists, update this that and the other software so I can do thing like, oh, I dunno, actually see a video...
I feel your pain. Everything is a chore, like trying to walk with 500-pound boots on. Good luck getting everything back where it needs to be.
