Retrieving undeleted emails from dead laptop.
Hi, I have a 12" Aluminium PowerBook G4 which has a broken a/c powerport and can't be turned on. I basically only used it for ebay and emails and have to somehow retrieve the hundreds of emails that I did not delete. Is there some way to do this?
Yes - pull the Hard Drive, & put it in an external case you can then access the files (even transfer your entire user account) to a newer Mac. via Setup Assistant or Migration Assistant.
Or, if you know the location of the data you wish to retrieve you can recover just that data manually via drag & drop. Merging an old and new email messags/address
Old OS 9 apps will not work on brand new Macs, but will work on Macs of a certain age.
