hi, new to the forum and am after some advice... apologies if this is in the wrong section or if there is already a thread for this (checked but couldnt find one).
basically, my macbook pro 15" titanium (10.6.4) hdd wont boot, but disk utility says its fine?.... i am creating an image (.dmg) of the hdd and saving it to a location on our network. can i then open the image on my macbook 13" (10.6.5) to retrieve files etc that i want to get access to?
aside from that its the data recovery route which i really cant afford at the moment.
any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks you in advance.

I wouldn't make an image of the entire drive, just your user folder/s. Will save on space and most of your stuff should be in your user folder anyway.

Yes, you'll be able to open the disk image. Wheeljack
