Hello, I've had my Macbook for 8 months and it sounds like the hard drive is failing. Recently the MB has been sluggish and yesterday it wouldn't even turn on. All I could hear was a clicking sound which I assume is the HDD trying (and failing) to get going. After switching it off and on again I got to the folder and question mark icon. After another restart (and a lot of waiting), OSX finally loaded up. Now I can't do much work because now and again the HDD starts playing up and the clicking sound begins. What I need though is a back-up of my files. Is there a way of taking a snapshot or something similar to a CD image that would be quicker than a full system back-up? Or is there a way to fix this problem without taking it to the Apple store?
