Yes, but I only have a couple of tools in my tool box for them.

err.. thanks dad...

moe... my daughter has a mac book that is giving her all kinds of grief. The "genius bar" wants to wipe it clean, but she will lose her Final Cut and some other programs she uses if she lets them. She doesn't have the restore discs. She also has files/work that are formatted to only work on these programs she would lose. She simply has her whole f'ing life on this thing.

I am hoping I can find someone who can tell me if it is possible to grab software off a mac so it can be put back on once the hard drive is wiped clean. The ppl at apple aren't being very helpful. We sure can't afford a new mac that would come with these expensive programs.

She is in serious pain over this stuff. I hope someone has some advice.

I have to go out for awhile, but we really do need help if there is anyone out there who knows anything. I will check back later.

Thanks....

just like any other puter, back up yer stuff , reformat and put the os and all the programs and data back , if it's really that far gone anyway, but I don't do mac, I've been told they don't fail. (I save and move data from failed os's all the time, it's usually not that big a deal for any decent tech.)

pretty sure l8term8te is a mac guy tho, with some puter smarts

giving her all kinds of grief

That is not very technical.
You still have not said anything.
Obviously you don't actually want any help.

The guy at the genius bar is saying that the big ticket programs cannot be backed up, like other data. He says that without the restore discs, we are screwed if they wipe it. We have an external and have moved plenty to it, but like he said we can't get the programs moved. And all the work she has that was created in those programs can only be used by those programs.

We bought this used from a company. I asked for the restore discs but they didn't have any. The programs and lap would have cost around 2600 new. We paid 1400. She has had it for 4 years so I don't feel we exactly got screwed. I am hoping that there is a way around what he says and what we are finding. You hear about jailbraking Iphones so I was thinking there might be a way around the Macs, too.

From what I understand, the problem is in the hard drive and the battery.. basically it's fucked. She can barely do anything on it. It won't update anything, either, like flash players, etc. Even with moving tons of stuff to the external, it seems to be out of memory. It has a short in the front part, as well, all around the mouse pad part. You barely touch the metal and it reacts like you used the tap area.

We would wipe it, for sure and buy a new battery if she wasn't going to lose the programs she needs cause we can't afford new programs. They are very expensive.

btw moe, I said above that I had to go out for awhile. sorry you seem to think I am purposely not responding even though I said that I was going to be off for a bit.
