Replacing my hard drive

  • Hello everyone, I'm dealing with a nasty problem with my Mac. A friend of mine told me that replacing the hard drive can help (the problem mainly concerns data corruption). Can I check if it is indeed the main cause before I spend money on a replacement?

  • Well, replacing the drive is a pretty extreme option. Have you checked if it's absolutely needed?
