So my girlfriend's macbook got dropped about 2 feet to the ground and now she gets the "question mark" folder when she boots up. Hard drive fail I assume. Now I'm told there is an accelerometer in a macbook that stop the drive to prevent damage on a fall. Is this indeed true? Next question could I hook my macbook to hers with firewire and try checking the drive, force boot it or anything, at least attempt to save the files from it? Any help would be very appreciated, all her pics of her son are on the drive (no back up) Thanks.
