A PC friend referred me to a woman who has a Mac clone and ran DiskDoctor version 4 and now she won't boot up (the computer that is )
In her own words
"Problem with Mac> Need to hire someone to get it back.
Was using Norton Utilities to check and repair system before optimizing. Used disk doctor> It told me to boot up from the CD to make major repairs.
* I probably had a newer version of Norton on my hard drive, but when I put in the CD-it was older (version 4.0). It began to fix everything- I kept re-running it to attempt to fix all of them-when I was done- I optimized it. When I was all done-and restart=I'm locked out.
I can't get back in= It says (message with the bomb icon) Sorry, a system error occurred. File system map inconsistent. To temporarily turn off extensions, restart and hold down shift key. (restart button icon)
It won't let me back in> When I restart- I get the small happy mac sign= but then the same message keeps coming up.
Goal> (A) Get system back. -or- (B) Just retrieve files and I'll buy a new computer."
PC friend: (She is talking about getting a MAC G5.......but needs to get all the files on her present system recovered, if possible.)
I think she is running OS 9 and ran a DiskDoctor for OS 8.6 or below??
That being true what do I charge for a house call?
