    Ill Be needing to send my Macbook Pro Off to service because the felt protective strip that covers the entrance to the optical drive has come off.
    my question, am ok to send my mac off with downloaded and cracked (illegal) software and games so that when they restore the mac its the way it was when when i sent it off or am i best to just delete it it all and start again when i get it back? will this defect my warranty or cause any other problems for me?
    :confused: any post will be off help...

    As with any repair, Apple nor it's representatives are responsible for the data on your machine. If it gets corrupted or overwritten, they are not held responsible. It shouldn't be an issue with your repair, but that's just standard for anyone.

    Chances are that they won't even care, but if you are worried about it, clone your drive (carbon copy cloner) and use the restore discs to get it back to original settings.

    Either clone the drive or find a cheapo 80gb and put that one in for the trip.
