I Have to sign up with Applecare by July assuming that I decide to do it. This is a question that I've had for a long time. If a computer should have to go in for repair, how does one protect the privacy of their existing hard drive data when the computer is turned in to Apple? I know they always say to back up your data before a repair, but how is the data privacy protected when it's in for repair? To secure it with a password would mean that Apple would not have access to the OS during the repair which would not be good. So what do people do about privacy? Thanks.
