MacBook Pro :: Recover Some Important Messages From Phone Using Disk Drill?
Jun 16, 2012
I am trying to recover some very important text messages from my Verizon phone and I downloaded a Mac application to help me, it's called Disk Drill. However when I connect my phone to the computer using the usb cable that came with it, my Macbook does not recognize that the phone is connected. Can I fix this and if so, how? The phone is a LG VX5500 Verizon cellphone and I do not believe that it has a SIM card. I took out the battery but it doesn't look like there is any place for a SIM card.
Verizon LG VX5500 and MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
I only receive my emails spasmodically, and often don't receive the important stuff! I would receive all emails on each of my devices, using Mail (often annoying as I would have to delete it 4 times) but at least it ensured that I didn't miss anything.
Now I only receive the messages that Mail wants me to get.... and not all of them, and once it has come down on one device, it doesn't appear on any of the others. I have deleted accounts and re added them, without any change. I have contacted my internet provider, and checked all the settings, and they appear correct (although my emails don't stay on the server as a backup option).
My iMessage stopped receiving messages sent to my phone number. I can only send and receive using my apple ID which is my email address. It use to be where my phone and laptop were completely synced now its either have a conversation on my phone or on my computer.
I'm getting an error with regards to memory usage. My Mac HD Info is saying I have only 1 GB of free space, but when I run the utilities disc usage (MacKeeper) it saying I have over 100GB of free space. I've deleted every important file off of my HD, but keep getting "Disk Full" errors
well while attempting to replace my hard drive I like many other people I completely stripped out the two screws on the hard drive bracket on my 15" PowerBook G4. They are very small screws, and I thought I had the correct size philips but apparently not. I tried to cut a slot in one of them with a Dremel but that only destroyed the entire head of the screw and sent bits of shavings everywhere. What can I do to get these screws out? Should I drill them out? I just can't think of any other way to get them out when one's stripped and one is worse than stripped. Is it possible to get replacements?
Originally, notifications from Messages.app would show the contact name sending the message. I'm not sure what caused it to stop, but now all notifications show up as the phone number of the contact. In the actual app, the names look fine. Is there some way to get contact names to show up again?
One of my drives is showing issues that Disk Utility isn't catching or can't find. I've heard about Diskwarrior, iDefrag, Drive Genius, etc... but which one is the most comprehensive, is there a "best of breed" disk app out there or one that does more than the others?
Booting from an external drive and running DW4 on MAC OS 10.7. Trying to recover from preview pane as my internal drive will not rebuild. The folders on the internal MacHD are visible in the preview but have "minus" on them and I will not copy. It is showing it has zero bytes and when I click on the copy from the preview pane I get a message that says the operation cannot be completed because I have insufficient privilages. My ultimate goal is to get out the home folder for the user and migrate the the user files to a new MacBook Pro.

How do I recover the data after erase the Macintosh HD disk and also reinstall the system?My laptop could not be turned on last Wednesday, but I needed to finish up my assignment and submit on Saturday.I searched online a way to keep my data but the laptop could be fix up.
Under disk utility, I erased the Mac OS Extended (Journaled), then reinstalled the system.It's said that in this way my data will be all kept, but when I finally got my laptop turned on.All my data was gone including my files, applications, and so on.

I am having problems with my Mac running slow. I had a friend guide me to run a "repair disk permission".I did that but I am not sure if I am to click clear history.Also should I do anything else to help my Mac run better?
My dear baby, a 3 year old macbook pro died last week (way to young). Fried logicboard. Apple wants 1.550 dollars to fix it, so I guess it is gone for good.
My question is, is it possible to take out the harddisk, put it in an external enclosure and plug it in to another mac to get the files?? If so, what enclosure should I buy?It is a summer 2007 macbook pro.
I just received a usb cable to connect my samsung phone to my ibook. The computer does not recognize my phone when I plug it in. Additionally, they sent a mini disc with it. Is there something I am supposed to do to get this to work?
I have a 1T lacie "big disk" that makes a loud whirring noise, then a clack, over and over again. It never gets itself mounted. I am thinking about pulling the disks and plugging them into a another machine, or disk enclosure. Is there any point to trying this or is the fact that I have 4 250G disks tied together to show up as a single 1T drive preclude any heroics?
I am having a problem with my disk space as I recently, by mistake, used the erase free disk space feature in Disk Utility, "loosing" in the process around 30 gb. Is there a way to reverse this process and reclaim the lost free disk space (without having to backup all the data and restore the entire system?
I had a WD external hard disk which I was using on my pc but not any more since I'm not a pc user any more. However, I'm a mac user now but when I connected my WD external hard disk I found out that i have lost everything on it. I thought may be because of my mac so I connected on my pc again and i have not seen any file which means I lost everything. Give me any software on mac that will get everything that I have lost. It's really important to me.
I have all these albums and songs on my phone and I don't know where they came from. I haven't downloaded them, they aren't in my library and I haven't synced with another computer. I have done a sync over and over anot nothing. I have even done a synch and took all the music off. I think it is 'other' stuff but don't know how to get it off of there.
I have the late 2008 MBP which has only 2gb of ram. I'm planning on upgrading the ram. With this, I'm just wondering if there is anything one has to know when doing this. Considering that I boot on both windows (bootcamp) and osx, would the ram be recognized immediately? Or do i have to install or do something first before it does. Is it more advisable to reformat the whole computer? Maybe because of some performance issues.
I setup a Bootcamp Partition to run Windows. I set it to only 10gb to save all of my space on my Mac OS. I wanted to delete it completely because it was doing some funny things on the Windows side but I accidentally deleted the Mac OSX Partition!!!! Now when I start up my computer it only starts up on Windows with the 10gb partition. I want to restore my Mac OsX partition with all of my important importation on it!
I was about to install Snow Leopard to my Macbook white 2.0 ghz with combo drive which I bought in 2007. I have Leopard installed. Is there anything I should know before I begin? I have an external HD with 160 left. Should I move important files there first?
