Hi everyone, I'm in a bit of a pickle. I tried to upgrade to 10.7 and somehow corrupted my HD so it wont boot, cant be repaired, wont mount and wont backup. At the same time, in Disk Utility, I can go in and view the entire contents of the HD so I know the whole thing is not corrupt. I need to copy my user file to an external HD so I can wipe my drive and reinstall OS X. Is there any software I can boot into that will allow me to copy specific files to an external HD? The only other route I can think of would be to remove the HD, install a new one, install OS X, buy a SATA-USB converter, plug in the old HD and copy over the files. Unfortunately I cant afford to buy a new HD at the moment. So there I am. Any useful responses will be met with joy! Thanks again. Mike PS I know this question may have been answered previously but I am in a time bind (aka work in 15 minutes) and I need to get this fixed ASAP. I apologize!
