Guess who didn't backup a few of years' worth of photos, iTunes, correspondence...?
I'm no techno-geek, but long-story-short, my work's G5 Mac HD starting running slower and slower after 3 or 4 years faultless usage. Startup took ages etc. Coincidentally, another HD of exactly the same age in our office expired just before mine. Had the HD replaced, but was told the data was unrecoverable.
I wondered if there are any specialists out there. Anyone recommend someone cheap/good who can at least have a go at recovering my photo library?
