I tried turning on my laptop the other day. It would not boot. I called apple to arrange service and I was about to send it in, when I thought, what if they reformat my hdd? I decided to check my external backup drive with a buddy's computer to see if all of my data was there (I backed up a couple days earlier). To my shock, the external drive failed as well. It just kept clicking. I learned my lesson... I will backup and backup again and again... My question to all of you is, can I remove my laptop hdd and copy the files to another computer? I want to get this professionally done since I have no experience with popping open laptops and I don't want to mess with my apple warranty. Would circuit city do this? How much will this service cost me? Please advise.
