So here's one for you folks, My sister, who is away at college, told me her macbook pro wouldn't start up and was just displaying a flashing folder with question mark. I looked into the problem, and understand that it means the the computer cant find the startup disc. But here's the twist...apparently her hdd has almost no space left on it (~1GB), and when she tries to run the OSX repair disc, it says she doesn't have enough space. We tried to repair the disc using disc utility, but it says that the disc cannot be repaired. So it seems to me that she is SOL, since she doesn't have a backup disc. Is there anything else I can have her try so that she doesn't lose all her files? This is a mid-2010 13" MBP running Snow Leopard. Thanks.
