Please try to remember, if you don't backup your data, it will be much harder to diagnose issues, since a diagnosis could make a hard drive die quicker. If you need help with data recovery, or backing up, just ask the question on the forums. If you wish to contact me directly, my e-mail is abrody AT macmaps.com. Note: this is not for software reviews, but rather to give troubleshooting freelance support. This e-mail/website is currently up. I can also be reached at abrody AT atlanticbb.net. I recommend whenever possible to start a new topic when you don't have a solution for the thread originator. This helps you get a wider audience, and those helping not get confused whom they are replying to. This also helps the thread originator not get conflicting advice. 57220 as of 2/9/2013
