So . . . I had an email from Apple saying they wanted to replace the hard drive in my late 2012 iMac. I have always backed up all my precious photos and movies to my Drobo and Carbonite cloud backup. Just to be 'safe, I thought I'd finally do a Carbon Copy Cloner of my whole hard disk just to be extra safe. 4 days and many attempts later no backup because the hard disk had so many bad sectors on it. I have my iMac back with a new hard drive now and have finally, after all these years, enabled Time Machine as it has taken nearly 3 days to reinstate everything. The my Drobo started to play up so I bit the bullet and sent for a new one. I shall have a much more extensive back-up once I get my new Drobo!
I have repeated the mantra - the three rules of computing, Back Up, Back Up, Back Up so many times. So I'm sharing this cautionary tale for your delectation 8((

Can anyone help?
 
Hi
Decided to make the jump from Aperture to Lightroom. I have 5.7.1 and I understood this version to contain a plug-in that will allow me to import all my stuff from iPhoto and Aperture. When I fire up Lightroom and click the import button it shows me every folder with every bit of pictorial crap in it, on my hard drive but no iPhoto or Aperture library. I looked to see if the plug-in is enabled and restarted the app, but it doesn't work. Can anyone help?

Hi Maccast gang - I'm a funny old fashioned Mac person who follows a lot of stuff on Netnewswire, including Apples latest Support articles. I live in the UK. Suddenly today Apples support stuff is downloading in French. I have nothing against French but I can't read it. I deleted the feed and found the correct RSS feeds on the Apple site and reinstalled the link only to find it happened again! Is this likely to be an Apple problem or has something gone wrong within Netnewswire?

Story
Tagline
Apprentice land manager and aspiring photographer
Introduction
Bought 25 acres of wilderness and now need to learn the skills to manage it! Big bonus, lots of photo opportunities for capturing the huge array of wild plants and wildlife in it. I've been a photographer all my life, ever since I had my Kodak Instamatic at the age of 10! I spent years trying to master film,but now I really want to get to grips with the world of digital photography and become a good photographer.
Bragging rights
Survived 25 years of marriage to Master Land Manager!
