A little while ago, the my brother’s macbook pro died a horrible death (Apple hardware tends to do that). Luckily a backup of the hard disk could be made with the mac disk utility. Well, luckily… Retrieving the data from the .dmg file seems to be more troublesome than I hoped it would be. When accessed with mac software, not all data could be retrieved (some files don’t even appear). However, after a long night of work, I got access to all the files again. How? read on…

Versus #4: Inception

Posted by Nick in Movies, Reviews on August 26th, 2010.
