So I find myself in the process of ripping one 750GB hard drive out of one MacBook Pro and tethering it to another MacBook Pro in order to copy files. Is this a sick and twisted version of the ‘sneaker-net’ you ask? No, this is the case of a corrupted Journaling Apple formatted hard drive… Let the chaos ensue! With this corrupt volume and therefore, corrupt drive, the only option is to backup, nuke and reload from scratch. But wait, Newer MacBook Pros don’t come with an install disk! True, but the link above details how to create a bootable USB Flash drive capable of installing OS X Mavericks, clean, from scratch, like new! So, in the hours that come, I will be maxing my 60Mbps internet connection in attempts to recover all that was once lost. Let the fruit recovery process begin!
