Long story, short. I was supposed to be selling my MacBook Pro 17" today for $1k. I booted it up to get what remaining files I needed to get. It wouldn't boot and the HDD was making clicking noises. I am disappoint. I have the system booted up through the start up disc. The HDD is showing up but is pale. It can't be repaired or anything. I apparantly could attempt to partition it but it warns me that everything would be deleted. I have four years of work on that HDD that I would like to retrieve. I have a Ext. HDD hooked up and it's recognizing it just fine. I could use a hand here if there is something I can do to just move all the info from one drive to another.
