MacBook :: How To Get Data Off Of Hdd

Mar 4, 2010

In theory it's all backed up on my Time Capsule, but . . .

If I need to get the data off (assuming the drive works) can I put it in an enclosure? Any specific one? Or can I simply get a cable and connect it? What cable?

I realize a cable, if possible, is a one-time solution. Ideally I'd get an enclosure and repurpose the drive. But it may be that I can get only one or two uses out of it, with the coffee stains and such.

Dec 10, 2014

I have lost all my data from my harts drive. The laptop is under warranty. I have been told that they have replaced my hard drive but could not get any data off the old one. I have now lost all my data, photos, files, music etc. NO backups, only simply because i did not know how to do them. Is there any way of getting the files back? All my work spreadsheets and accounts were also lost.

OS X :: Data Rescue 3 Seems To Be Finding Lost Data But Doesn't Recover It?

Nov 1, 2010

Need some help here. My friend is a DJ and had an external drive with tens of thousands of songs on it. The plug broke on it and I think that corrupted it since Eject was not used. I pulled the 3.5in HDD out of the case and hooked up up with some other external plugs I have.

When I run Data Rescue 3 on it, it shows that it sees almost all of these and the only two formats it counts up are mpeg and mp3s. Data Rescue then finishes the scan and has a bunch of crap files that are not needed, but none of the songs show up. What is going on here? Did I miss something in Data Rescue 3.

The drive is a 1TB drive and the backup drive we are using is 640GB, but there was only about 250GB of music on the drive to begin with.

MacBook Air :: Sync Data Between Two Or Three?

Oct 23, 2010

If I can't resist and buy the 11" air I'll have the air, a 15" i7 MBP, and a 27" iMac. Assuming I keep them all and use them for different reasons, how do I keep my data sync'ed between them all. Clearly I can't keep as much on the air, but I have a basic data set of docs (office type stuff, some graphics, some programming) that I'd like to be the same on all the machines.

MacBook Pro :: Moving My Data Onto New?

Dec 20, 2010

I currently have a 2006 white macbook that I have backed everything up onto an external HD with Time Machine. I have bought one of the new 13" Macbook Pros, but I can't just plug the external HD in and import everything, as the Pro has CS5 and the new Microsoft Office on it which I don't want to lose.

So I'm wondering, how can I get everything from my macbook onto my macbook pro, without losing CS5 and Office 2011.

Also, I've just realised, my macbook currently has Office 2008 on it, so I don't want to transfer that over in case it covers the newer copy of Office on the Pro.

OS X :: Mac Pro And Macbook Pro - How To Sync Data Between Them

May 10, 2009

Ok I have a Mac Pro and Macbook Pro here and I'd like to do the following:

1. Have some way to sync contacts between the MP and MBP, my iPhone syncs with the Mac Pro.

2. Sync files, namely the mail folder, documents, iTunes etc.

Now for No. 2 CCC with its addon might be ok, but is there any other ways?

I am NOT buying mobile me, as its twice as much as Im willing to pay for a hosting service!

So any options?

MacBook :: Can't Erase USB Data

Jan 7, 2010

Every time I try to erase music from my USB Key or Phone.

You can see that the music or files have been erased, but it doesnt free up and space. When you pop the USB Key into the stereo or play music on the phone, all the files are there.

I have to go through the Disk Utility option to erase stuff, but this erases everything. When you erase on the PC, everything is fine.

MacBook Pro :: Transfer Data On New HD

May 13, 2010

I have a 13" MBP and just got a new 500gb HD to pop in replacing my 160gb one. I have about 200gb free on an NTFS external I was planning on using time machine to back up my system for seamless HD swap but as we know, macs don't play nice with NTFS. If possible, I would like to not have to re-install all my applications and such. I found other software (SuperDuper) that should do the same thing but none will play with my NTFS external. I guess my question is this: I have a SATA to USB adapter, can I: Plug in new HD via USB, Format to OSX Journaled, then do a time-machine backup to the new drive, pop in the new HD and be good to go?

MacBook Pro :: Can't Migrate Data From Old PC To It?

Mar 25, 2012

I have been trying to migrate my data from my PC to my new mac but it always seems to fail.At first, I would begin the migration assistant and then after a while the PC would just crash.But then I finally thought I managed to get it working. It said that process was complete (on both the PC and mac), but there was no data on my computer and no music in my iTunes. 

PS I also have an Ethernet cable if that's of any use but I don't know how to use it.

MacBook :: Transferring Data From One To Another?

May 18, 2012

I recently bought a second hand mac from ebay and it was pretty empty. There are some settings still from the previous user. 

My old mac's backlight has died and the only way to use it is to link it up to my tv. 

I have tried using the Migration assistant via WI-FI and ethernet cable and both haven't worked. 

I'm considering taking the hard drive out of the mac and using it as an external hard drive. There are a couple of programs i've tried to download but dont work and i'd really like my firefox settings back! 

I was also wondering if i was able to take the RAM from the old mac and install it in the new mac?

MacBook :: Best Backup Of Data On It?

May 19, 2012

I recently went into the Apple store looking for a way to perform a backup of data on my MacBook.  Their solution was that with a MAC it was not really necessary.  However, if I really felt that I needed to backup data, consider using ICLOUD.  I do not see how to do this on my MacBook.  Can I have some more detail regarding backup of my data.  I want to back up Excel files, bank statements, etc.

MacBook Pro :: Migrating Data From HDD To SSD?

Jun 21, 2012

One of these days, I may purchase a Crucial SSD (512GB). 

I need to know how to copy the contents of my current factory HDD (seagate 5400rpm 500GB) to the Crucial SSD. Note that they are of different sizes. 

What I have:

- Carbon Copy Cleaner

- Time Machine (with time capsule)

- Spare 750GB external HDD 

Which is the fastest, safest, and easiest way to accomplish this task? Again, the drives are of different sizes, and only one can be in the machine at a time.

Hardware :: MacBook Pro - Burned CDs Contain No Data?

Jul 18, 2008

MacBook Pro - Burned CDs contain no data

I have a late 2006 15" C2D MacBook Pro

It was working swimmingly until a couple days ago when I noticed that iTunes and Finder were no longer burning information on to CDs. Finder will burn information on to DVDs, I have not tried burning to DVD from iTunes.

Has anyone run into this problem? Here are the things I've noticed:

1) When burning on full speed, the disc just gets a "media write error"

2) When dropping to slow speed (2x, or lower!), iTunes goes through the burn process, shows the CD in iTunes as having been burned, but when you eject the disc, there is no data. If you look at the disc, there is no data or burning marks, etc.

3) DVDs from finder show burned marks, and will hold data.

Here's what I've changed to my MBP in the last couple weeks:

1) ran iDefrag in order to free up a lot of fragmented free space. Worked great.

2) moved my iTunes music and video to an external Lacie FW800 drive. (I'm moving it all back to the MBP now to see if this is an issue, but when trying to burn files off the actual MBP hard drive, it still doesn't work to CD. The external drive is HFS+)

3) ran BootCamp to get an XP partition (15gb out of 160gb), which is fine (haven't tried burning in XP yet.)

MacBook Pro :: OWC Data Doubler With SSD Drive?

Oct 23, 2010

Has anybody tried one of these with an SSD drive to replace the optical drive? Other World Computing even sells these with their SSD drives. I'm thinking that a combination of one of these in a MBP 13 would allow me to have both a high capacity HDD and high performance SSD. I wonder if you would be able to shutdown the HDD to save battery life when not using?
