Alright, so I'm an idiot and didn't have a few things backed up. I now have an external HD and over the past week have discontinued being an idiot. Here lies my problem. My HD in my iMac crashed.. My computer wouldn't start up so I took it to the Apple Store and this is what he told me. HD crashed. So as I was there, he was able to go in and see what was on it, and pull off what I wanted...or so he claims. I had him pull my itunes library off as it was worth hundreds of bucks and also pull my Quicken data off as it handles all of my banking including my personal business info. I bought the new version of Quicken, threw it on my MacBook today, plugged in the external HD that the Apple employee said he backed up the Quicken data onto, and m=nothing there. Most of my itunes library was there but no Quicken. My long winded question is this.. The HD is out of the computer (imac that crashed) as I replaced it with a new one. Is there a place that I can send this thing to or take it to that could perhaps find the Quicken data and help me out? Like a recovery company.. It's pretty important as my wife handles banking and when I told her the data is gone she tried to jump off a cliff. Claims the IRS will come after us with a sawed off if I don't find it. HELP!
