A friend of mine has an iMac. Long story short, it went pop and she’s now got a new one and the old HDD.
She wants to recover her data from the old drive (yes yes backups, I’ve given her that lecture). Am I right in thinking it’s the same as in the PC world, get a USB caddy and whack the drive in, job jobbed, or is it Not That Simple?
“it will give you the option of booting from the old drive”
“>She doesn’t want to do that, she just wants her “work and photos”
So when it boots up just re-save the “work and photos” somewhere else…. dropbox, usb stick whatever, then restart the machine (on the new internal) and import the recovered stuff from where you’ve just saved it.
...and we need you to agree to it before continuing on to our website.
