My laptop MacBook Pro is playing up and won't let me log in at all. Apparently I need to reformat the disk which means everything saved will be wiped. Problem is I have photos in the laptop which I need to retrieve first. Can anyone help with this? Just want to know if I can get my pictures out and if so how to do it. Please see pic of screenshot. I'm in marrickville area ideally you can come to me or I can bring laptop to you if close by, Or if possible talk me through it online. Cheers

Have had internal drive failures of my own in the past and had the support from an apple tech to have to problem solved. Should be the same solution

Easy fix, I can get you to login and get your files back.

Ill even get you ready to fix your mac and make it up to 5x faster by upgrading a hardware (hdd to ssd) later as another task if you like.

You dont have to pay if your issue isn't resolved :-)
Your mac seems like its a 2012? Close?

Would be happy to help you online. Do you have access to a second Macbook or iMac or Mac Pro?

Hello, happy to send you through an article which gets you through this.

Essentially goes along the lines of below:

Apple's Time Machine can help backup Mac to an external hard drive, however, it won't assist you further if the hard drive has the system on it. Meanwhile, since your hard drive's failing and Disk Utility can no longer fix it, there is a great chance that backup can not be complete successfully.

Hence, to ensure that everything remains, the best backup option for a failing or crashing hard drive is to 'clone'. Mac disk cloning is to copy everything on one hard drive to another, so it can 100% protect data.

There's plenty of software that does this, please let me know if you need anything further.

Hey Steve,

If you have an external drive that is empty (and must be larger than the drive that it's getting the data from, I can offer a solution that I have used myself a while ago. It will be a bit time consuming but should provide a very good solution to saving what's left of the data (can only guarantee to recover what sin't corrupt on the drive).

Kind Regards
Elliot
