Hi. My Macbook has experienced some problems and no longer works. Apparently it is something with the motherboard. I am sending it in to Apple, but I had some files on it I wanted to get off before I sent it in. Is there any way to get these files off of the hard drive? Do I need to remove the hard drive and use an external device to connect it to my desktop computer? Does Apple look at the contents on my hard drive? The only reason I ask is because I have certain files that I wish to remain private. Thanks.
