I've been tasked with helping my mother recover data from her "busted" Mac Mini. For months it was unable to boot, and we took it into the "genius bar" where they got it to partially boot, but diagnosed hard drive problems. The drive is clearly not totaled, it booted up most of the way in the store, showing the background and some icons, but keeping a loading cursor going and not accepting any interaction (IIRC). Data recovery places are of course touting rather exorbitant rates even to take the drive, so I've been wondering what I could do to try and recover information myself. Any advice?
