    I have a Mid-2009 17" uMBP which my HDD just failed on me. I was iChatting my a family member and tried watching a file on VLC and it started giving me the spinning beach ball. So I hard resetted the uMBP and now when I try and turn on the uMBP it'll just stay on the Apple load screen with the spinning cursor. But if I load WinXP from Boot Camp, it'll load. I failed in backing up my files using Time Machine since I've had it. Is it too late to recover my files using a DIY method? If it is, is it possible to recover my files through WinXP? Please help. I need my files!!!:eek:[​IMG]
