so guys i posted earlier about how my computer was screwing up...finder doesn't work, i can't open to view any folder, etc....it is definitely a hardware problem, i hear things click inside the computer every once in a while...i tried running time machine on a brand new drive, and it got thru like 700MB/100GB and then failed. and to be honest, i'm really stupid (i realize now) i've only ever used my (non-time machine) external hard drive to offload movies and tv shows that i download. i don't care if i have to get a new computer, i've actually been considering it for a few months, but will someone at an apple store be able to save my pictures (most important to me is the pictures, everything else i can get again), music, etc.? it's really weird because the OS loads fine and looks good on the surface until you try to run anything...and in the menu bar spotlight is constantly indexing. you don't know how heart breaking it was to get excited that time machine was gonna work and save me, only to see it fail before getting 1% through sorry for posting again but i'm freaking out and just want peace of mind that my things can be saved by an expert who might be able to take it apart, fix the hardware problem, then get it off. is that going to be possible?
