Well the nightmare struck.... i was working on my mac and it froze up. I used cntrl apple power to restart and then was confronted with the flashing folder with a ? icon. I have inserted the CD that came with the computer and have used the disk utility to try to verify and repair the HD however, I get a invalid volume header message in red. I was going to try the archive and install option however when I get to the select a destination section of the reinstall and no optionas appear for me to choose. Of course I have not backed up in a while.... all help would be greatly appreciated from seeing if I can recover data to getting it back up and running Thanks in advance for any help!!
