Dear Glen

One might add, as an even more important conclusion, that none of your data would have been lost if you had kept an up-to-date backup, say, via Time Machine or via one of the cloning apps such as SuperDuper! or CCC.

I am not being smug or condescending, just reminding everybody that drives fail for whatever reason and backing up is crucial. External HDs for such purposes are very inexpensive versus the price of the computer and the data being protected.

Still, I'm very sorry about your loss.

Ian
