Hi all. My wife's iBook G3 is showing the small folder icon with a flashing ? on it. She has not backed up the HD for some time and reeeealllly needs documents off it. Listening closely at start up, I do not hear the HD spin, but rather hear two sets of 10 click/click, which sounds closely to that of a wrist watch. I get the startup chime after the two sets of clicks. Then shortly the ? on folder flashes.
Is there any hope of getting the HD working again? Is there any hope in getting the data recovered? Is the drive dead, never to spin again?? (if so, she won't be a happy camper.)
Any advise out there?
