Is it possible for Mac to replace the mini hard drive with a new one and back up information on disk?

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Yes. Provided you can get to the old drive.

    Is it difficult to get to?  Can the Mac store send it out?

    I'm not familiar with the Mini hardware, so I don't know how easy or hard it is to get to the drive. You might check on OWC where there may be a video tutorial. They also sell notebook drives.


    Although you can ask your local store about, most do not do this sort of work. But they may be able to give you the names of those who can. Best Buy's Geek Squad may do it if you buy the drive from them.
