Question: Will erasing Macintosh HD delete all my files?
My charger failed and my computer died while updating. It was stuck in the loop of letting me log in then turning off again and showing the “computer shut down because of an error” message. I went through the steps of holding command and r and got the disk utility page but the next step is to ”erase Macintosh HD” (format Mac OS Extended (Journaled)). I’m assuming this will delete all my files. Is there any way around this?? I really need the files on my computer.
