Apple G5 Power Mac Data Recovery

Apple G5 Power Mac Data Recovery

If your G5 Power Mac is not starting and just shows a folder on the screen with a question mark, chances are the hard drive has failed.

If you don’t have a current Time Machine or other backup, don’t panic it is possible to recover the files from your G5 Power Mac.

When submitting an Apple hard drive the type of details we find really useful are:

Was Filevault switched on? (file encryption, you have to switch this on)

What version of OSX is it i.e.  10.5 Leopard, 10.6 Snow Leopard,  10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion

What has been tried already?  This can make a difference to know in advance what has happened.

Has it been dropped?  (hopefully not in the case of an iMac)

Has it gotten wet?

What files or folders are a priority, i.e.Pictures in the Jamie profile (iPhoto Library)

Just give us a call and we will do our best to recover the data from your G5 Power Mac.


Remember - when affected by data loss issues - Don’t Panic!

Just switch if off and contact a specialist.
