Hey everyone, First post and, selfishly, I'm asking for help. My girlfriend's MacBook Pro has seemingly given up the ghost. It won't boot up and is stuck on the Apple logo/spinning wheel grey page. I've tried to boot up in Safe Mode, but an hour later, nothing. I then successfully booted up into Recovery mode. I tried to verify disk permissions, lots of errors, but then stopped. Tried to Verify Disk, it told me it couldn't verify. I tried to Repair Disk, it told me the Disk couldn't be repaired. My girlfriend, sadly, isn't one for being organised enough to have a Time Machine setup to help with situations such as this. I happened to back it up a few months ago, just because, but there's months' worth of work that's not been backed up. I'm looking to back up again onto an external HD, if possible. Sadly, I haven't been able to mount the internal HD (Mac told me it couldn't be mounted) and I'm a bit stuck. What makes matters worse; I have only one USB cable, which is partially severed, but can just about hold a connection. It's also 1am here in Berlin, Germany and the computer stores aren't open on Sundays. I realise there'll be those of you who will say, "She should've backed up," and I'm more than aware of that. If anybody has any positive suggestions for a relative novice, I'd be really happy to hear from you. Thanks in advance.
