Apple store called. They replaced my hard drive and were able to retrieve most of the data on the computer including our iPhoto's. I would dance if I could! We had NO back up for that computer, our other computers were backed up to it. We bought a back up system now so this hiccup doesn't happen again but yea, we had just talked about backing it up right before it died.
my iPhone is a trixie little hobbit that never really says what I mean!
We are a Military family that lives without limits!
