Ok, So I am not a OSX person and do not know mac. I do see the relations to windows, I.E. Apple button + C is the same as control + c in windows to copy. I get stuff like that. The problem is that his 111.47GB HDD is full! I hooked up an external HDD to try and rip his information across to save, and it will not let me. I click on the file, do the copy and paste short cuts and it will not do anything. I manually click the file, manually do the edit copy / paste into the external HDD and nothing. Odd thing is, I select an image, do copy and look back at the Edit menu and the option to paste is grayed out. So something is either not right with his HDD, failing maybe, or his HDD is to full to even perform these basic tasks. Another option is virus, but I do not know at this point. Just giving the symptoms of the issues. On another note, the mac book pro boots up into windows fine, has no permission issues with accessing other directories on different users. So how can I backup this HDD? Seems its not letting me. I also pulled the HDD out, through it into a cradle and tried to view it in windows and that was a no go. It just read it as a ghost partition, knew that 111.47GB HDD was there. Any help would be very much appreciated.
