Disaster!! Time Machine HDD Crashed!


[link to this post]
 
Switched on my iMac tonight and proceeded to do a backup but it said the HDD wasnt available!!

Rebooted and unplugged the drive still no joy!

I am now having to get the wife to get a new drive so i can backup my drive!!

Nightmare!!

[Edit for title mispelling!]

There is absolutely no substitute for a genuine lack of preparation

Go out and buy the most recent version of DiskWarrior (4 or 4.1 I think). Boot off the DVD. If it can be saved, DW will save it.
