Hello all, I am new to the forums and am not too tech savvy. Any who, my iMac starts but stays at the apple logo and spinning wheel (pic attached). Is there any quick fix to this? Also I do not know if all my files (specifically my pictures) have been backed up. I do not have an external hard drive for the iMac. It's been this way for a while, only reason I'm concerned now is because there are pictures of my grandmother which I would like to retrieve (she passed a week ago). Any help would be appreciated! iMac is from 2008/09 and still had a lot of free space. We only used it at home for internet and picture storage. I am not too sure what the last OS update in it was but it was earlier this year. Thanks in advance!
