Sad Mac

Sad Mac

Remember that episode in Sex and the City when Carrie gets Sad Mac-ed? Well, that happened to me last week.

I should have seen it coming. My mac was about 8 years old and on its last leg. It would die the second it wasn’t connected to power and it took close to a full minute just to close a program. And then, one day last week, it just happened.

I hadn’t backed up since October of 2011, so my biggest worry was that I had lost everything I had stored on my mac. My pictures! Eight years worth of memories!

But, countless hours at the Genius Bar, a trip to a mom and pop computer store (after being told that since my Macbook Pro was more than five years old it was considered “vintage” and couldn’t be fixed by Apple), and one hard drive extraction later, they were able to save everything and I’m finally back up and running on my new Macbook Air.
