My Mac and I are going through a rough time right now. A few nights ago, my Mac wouldn't go past the desktop display, and it wouldn't reboot either! After calming down and forcing myself to put aside all fears of losing my data, I found out that my internal hard drive was maxed out, mostly because of my iPhoto. I think it's about time I figure out how to manage my photo archives better.
My 320g hard drive was way up to capacity, and the only thing to do was to upgrade to a 500g hard drive. While I was at it. I also decided to upgrade my RAM from 4 to the maximum, 8g, and upgrade to Lion and to iLife'11. Meanwhile my life is on hold.
Now my old HD, with all my files, is safely in a metal hard case and acts as my external drive, I now have to wade through the clutter of old files and transfer only the most important ones. The most precious thing to me in the computer is my iPhoto so I just moved the whole thing over with 70k photos.
So now there's a traffic jam of posts in my head. I hope to sort out this Mac stuff soon because I feel lost if my computer is acting up. BRB.
