Crash!


Yup for some reason my apple computer that I bought NEW last January (a year and a half) ago totally crashed on Monday! It was practically brand new! All I can say is it's a good thing I bought the extended warranty this past January that covered it for 2 more years. If this new hard drive crashes in less than 3 years, I won't buy another apple computer. I can't believe how fast it crashed!!

To everyone out there who owns an apple... buy that extended warranty! We didn't have to pay a dime. The only thing that really stinks is that I was making online scrapbooks through Blurb and I didn't back up ANY of those files. It's a sad day. I have to start over from scratch. I don't think I will... I can't seem to find the motivation.

Luckily I had all of my pictures saved on an external hard drive. The only pictures I lost are the ones that I took of us on our 3 year anniversary. Luckily (again) we didn't do anything that night except go out to dinner because Mason had homework. So it was nothing too heartbreaking.

Just frustrating!

You just motivated me to back up all of our pics on the external hard drive. We've had our mac for 3 years now with no problems...knock on wood!

Al,

Apple computers have hardware problems just as often as any other computer. No one makes a fail-proof hard drive. The bigger differences are that Apple doesn't have viruses that crash your hard drive and if you get the warranty (I always do too), then it doesn't cost a penny to fix it.

You should set up time machine on your mac. I have it on both of mine set up so if a hard drive crashes, all i have to do is plug in the new machine to my time machine and it will restore it EXACTLY as it was before the crash. I'd be happy to show you how to do that.

Hope all is well (other than your computer tragedy).

That's so weird! We have an apple that we've had for over 4 years and just now it's starting to be a little funky. I think it will die soon. Sorry about your computer though! Boo!

I have heard nothing but negative things about Apple products... I'm sticking with my PC!

So sorry you lost your scrapbooks... that is horrible! I made a super intricate one for our Portugal trip and was almost done, when I upgraded my software to the new version... and it erased all the current albums I had. I know how you feel about the lack of motivation. I'll probably just plug them all in on blank pages and leave it at that. Depressing.

Because Viagra is a very potent drug, your physician will ask you lots of questions before pulling out his prescription pad. Because Viagra online affects your blood flow, if you have significant heart problems, history of stroke, or untreated diabetes or high blood pressure, Generic Cialis may not be the best match for your other health needs.

Oh boy....those darn blurb books take so long:( Maybe just to blogtoprint for what you missed and start a new blurb book from now. Yuck.

Same thing happened to Shally and she still hasn't gotten up the energy to restart it.
