Hey guys so last night my sister spilled bubbles on to my Macbook. Hit the screen and flowed straight into the vent where the logic board and RAM is. I acted fast. Took the HDD and Battery out. Put the laptop upside down and dried off the exterior and interior. The screen just shut off. I'm letting it dry now for a few days. I'm wondering if there is anyway I can check if my HDD is still good. It had a lot of really valuable stuff on it. Please help!


This is the model I have.

You can take it out, put it into a USB enclosure for 2.5" S-ATA HDDs and connect it to another Mac or Windows computer and look for yourself.
You can use the instructions in the following guides to see, how to do that, or you can look for guides yourself.
MacBook, MacBook Pro: Replacing the Hard Disk Drive, transferring data to the new HDD

the guide includes:
  • 0. Identify your MacBook or MacBook Pro
  • 1. Getting a new HDD
  • 2. Guides to replace the internal HDD with a newer one
  • 3. Transferring data from the old HDD to the new HDD
  • 4. Using the optical disk drive (ODD) slot for placing an SSD or HDD inside the MB/P (OPTIBAY)
