Hello:

I as noticing that my os was becoming slower and slower.then one day it started to stay on the blue screen of the begining. It does not work on save mode. when i run the fsck it says that every thing its ok.

the thing is that from what i read i should reinstall my os x again fresh. The problem is that i didnt did any backup of my data. I dont want to lose it and doing a fresh os instalation erases all the data. Doing a manual backup from the command line seems complicated to me,. its there anything i can do to repair my system without losing my data. or any way of doing a backup and save my data.



thank you
andy

There shouldn't be any reason to reinstall your OS.
Try the steps here:

and if you are still stuck on a blue screen, try the steps here:

Reinstalling the OS should be the absolute LAST thing you should do, and most of the time it isn't ever really needed.

The problem is that all the instruction you gave me are done in save mode and i do not know how to do things they say me on the command line.
can you give me a more step by step to try troubleshooting.

Those articles I linked to are about as step-by-step as it gets. I really couldn't make it any clearer than Apple has already.
