Transfer files when both disk image and repair permissions fails.
I have a problem, which I can't seem to find an answer to, so now I hope you can help. I'll try to make a structured walk through.
Version: 13,3 Mid 2011 model: A1369
When powering on, the apple logo and spinning wheel shows. The loading bar beneath also shows, but when it's about 25% done it dissapears. The apple logo and spinning wheel keeps showing, but nothing else happens (stays like that for hours). I never get to the home screen.
Question:The most important is to get the files on the Harddrive (old pictures etc). Is there any way to get this?
It's possible to access the Disk Utility on the Recovery drive, but when trying to make a Disk Image of the HDD it fails with this error:
"unable to create disk image: Input/Output Error"
When trying to repair permissions in disk utility it fails with this error:
+*Verify and Repair volume "Macintosh HD"*+
+Checking Journaled HFS Plus volume.+
+Checking Extents Overflow file.+
+Checking Catalog file+
+*Keys out of order*+ (in red)
+Rebuilding Catalog B-tree.+
+*The volume Macintosh HD could not be repaired.*+ (in red)
+*Error: Filesystem verify or repair failed.*+ (in red)
When I'm picking source and destination in the Disk Image utility I can see all my files in the "finder" that shows. I just don't know how to access them so I can back them up/Copy them to an external harddrive.
Is this a good question?
