From Steven Taylor.

Hi folks.

Seriously, you should always absolutely insure that you back up everything and 
as often as you can.

I use a braille note purely for back up purposes, a simple process of keeping 
what I want on my Mac to be on another computer.

In my case, I have several disks where back up stuff  is stored, it really is 
the best and only way.

Now if your hard drive really crashes, may I suggest rather then spending huge 
amounts of dollars getting it serviced, you seriously consider a new hard drive 
altogether, it is cheaper in most cases for a new and more importantly already 
formatted and working hard drive to be fitted in the overwhelming majority of 
most cases.

You can simply buy the drive yourself and then get the technical staff to fit 
it, this works out cheaper in most cases then them getting out one drive, then 
finding another and then putting the new hard drive in the computer.

Hard drives are extremely cheap these days less than 300 dollars and available 
in many stores.

Some to consider are.

Harvy Norman, Good Guys, Retrovision, Tandi also known as Dick Smith, leading 
edge, Clive peters, jb highly, office works, better electronics, and others.

One call to 1234 and yes they are a rip off but one call to 1234 will also give 
you computer stores in your local area.

Another thing you might  like to try is google.

Type in something like this.

Technical computer stores Melton Victoria Australia.

Now wait a minute.

On your google page there is a radio button for pages from Australia only so 
select this button and perform the search again.

Tip, if you have a tape recorder or other note taking device get your screen 
reader to speak the text of the websites spelling them out if necessary.

Another tip.

Insure when you phone the store you speak with the right technical expert for 
your inquiry in fact, seek a second opinion from another technical staff member 
of the same store whilst you are on the telephone.
