    Well? What did you do with them? Where did you store them?



    This is not a drill, soldier!

    Like Doctor Q ordering you to take a backup right now, I'm talking about these:



    [​IMG]


    Grey install discs that come with your Mac. They're important. Don't just stash them with your unwanted and scratched Spice Girls and Hanson CDs. Put them in jewel cases, keep them with the Mac box or put them with your precious bought and paid-for CDs and DVDs.

    You'll need them at some point, whether for trouble-shooting your Mac, or trying to sell it in the future. So where are they?!

    Ha! Ha!

    Good advice as always!

    Not sure how people always seem to lose their stuff™

    So where are yours, Dawg. Hmmm? I notice you didn't answer the question. ;)

    I keep all my discs inside the box they came in. They do come in handy.

    I leave 'em in the box and stash it in my box closet.

    edit - when I'm not busy circumventing EULAs and installing OSX on PC's!

    In August of 2007, I wanted to do a system restore for my MBP, and reached for my discs. I ended up reaching for the two Disc 2s provided, quickly noticing that there was no Disc 1.

    Mine are in the original box my MacBook came in, along with the original instruction booklet and everything else that came with it. The box is in my wardrobe.

    Book cabinet in parents computer room, right of the iMac.


    When I had to do a clean install of my iBook, it took me a week to find those damn things.....

    My 10.4 discs are in the closet, in the big MBP box on the top shelf that's hard to reach. My 10.5 disc is at an ex-girlfriend's apartment, and imaged onto "volumes/my book/.backups/" and "~/.backups" for good measure.

    Blimey, I think they are in my filing system somewhere. Unfortunately my filing system only contains the letter M for Miscellaneous which makes it rather pointless :).

    I still have them for my old Powerbook, but since then I've upgraded OS X, and iLife, so is there anything they would be useful for apart from troubleshooter maybe?
