My iBook HD is failing, it scrapes and crunches when I use it. I hooked up an external FW drive, installed OSX on that and used DiskWarrior to repair the drive to a state that I can see data on it. So I'd like to backup the data and install a new disk. Should be cake compared to upgrading the dvd/cdrw from cdrom. First off, I can't even backup my user folders, everything has the donotenter icon on it. Is there a way to get this data? 2nd, if I can get the data, is there a way to completely restore my user settings to a clean install of the OS on a new HD. Specifically my wife's account has a slew (ok 3) of email accounts and passwords that I dont know. If I wanted to set them up again, I'd have no idea what they are. 3rd, is there any reason why I could not install a 60gb drive in here, assuming the physical disk height does not exceed the required 9.5mm? I really don't want to put another 20gb drive in here.
