Last night my MacBook started acting up. I rebooted and nothing. Flashing folder (see this stuff even happens to me). I did some testing, attempted to boot from a CD, nothing.
Turned it off last night and figured maybe a “rest” would help and then went to the new iMac to see what I could do with dropbox and mozy.
I have my data backed up with mozy mid-day Sunday and I know time machine at the office is in place but I wanted to try and submit a check for some payment.
I could not recover from mozy (urg). The rule of backup is it is only as good as it’s recovery. So far nothing. Client failed, web-version failed and did not test yet this morning.
More to come once I get to the office and see why my next recovery steps are.
A FEW UPDATES:
Following some rebuild of the MacBook, I did some checking and found that Mozy (at least web-based) was responding to my recovery requests and I was able to recover some files (safari bookmarks for one). Also Time Machine came to the rescue by just giving me the easiest method of finding and recovering data (1password files and studiometry data files). Yeah for backup (in multiple places with multiple results)!
