I am experiencing the Radeongate issue with my 2011 15" MBP. I am battling with Apple right now but fear they may tell me to go to hell. If it comes down to it I am not going to buy another Apple, again. Ever. I will go back to PC. So what I want to know is how I can get my files back to my next PC. I have been using Time Machine.If I plug my 3.0 TB backup Hard Drive into a new PC, will I be able to migrate the photos, documents, and other files seamlessly to a new PC? A month ago I reasoned an alternate backup. I decided to create a separate folder on the backup drive and manually copy all the photos, documents, and downloads on the MBP's Finder and paste them into this folder. The thinking its that if Time Machine is Mac proprietary and won't play nicely with Windows/PC, that maybe the files themselves can be copied over. I know that's basically what Time Machine does: copies new files, references changes to the system, etc. but I wanted to have a backup in case TM wouldn't work. Any other comments, insights, or opinions are welcome. Thanks.
