My hard drive has stopped functioning, have I lost everything?
I can't get to any of my data on my hard drive. Have I lost everything on my hard drive?
Aditional information from another question:
Just before my computer took a vacation, I was getting messages that my hard drive was full even though I had over 16 gig of available space on my hard drive. Now when I boot up the computer, I get to the grey apple screen, with the little whirling circle (grey not colored) comes up and stays on forever. I have tried to boot up with an installation disk but the disk doesn't boot it up,it just tries to install a new operating system, but when it gets to the destination screen it stays there and doesn't proceed with the process any further it just stays at the screen. I can't access anything on the HD. Help!!!
Ps. Try to make one question per problem, Ron Lewis. Not several...
