So my Macbook's HD decided to pack up today, have been scouring the net for solutions. Am Repairing Disc, using the Disc Utility, having booted the Macbook from Snow Leopard CD. Here's the thing, I have 100gb worth of my baby's photos and videos on the HD (yea, I know, back up now idiot, believe me, I'm kicking myself) which has packed in, which I can't seem to access. While running the Disk Repair, I can see like a million "invalid record count" and "Invalid node structure" errors, which means that most of my files aren't salvageable. Probably. But from seeing a DiskWarrior site, I'm inclined to try anything to recover my data. THe HD sees that the capacity of the disk has 6.9gb left, so I assume I can recover some/most of my files. My question is, if I can't create an image of the HD, and save this onto an external hard drive (which is my first option that I'm trying now), how does DiskWarrior work if I can't boot without the Snow Leopard disk? What the hell can I do?
