Hi Dexel,
You haven't mentioned here whether there is any problem with your hard disk or not. And, why you are not using your Hard disk. I there is any problem with the hard disk, then I suggest you to correct it first and after that take the backup using any method as per your suitability.
Finally, instead of updating to 10.8.5, update your Mac to Yosemite which provides you more control on your system.

I bought a blackberry storm 9530 few months ago and recently the screen started freezing frequently with in an hour or so. please help me solve my problem...............



Hi,

The easiest thing to do is to take it to the manufacturer because the phone is still under warranty, but, if you want to repair it your self, follow the step below.

The issue you describe appears to be corruption of one or more system files within the BlackBerry OS. A forced update should restore your BB to working condition, but there is the risk that you may lose your data. If that is a problem, do not proceed.
If you wish to restore the BB, please continue below after verifying that you have the following:
A. Computer (Windows) B. BlackBerry Desktop Manager software (BlackBerry.com) C. Latest version of the BlackBerry OS for your make/model BB

To get the OS, simply log on to your carriers website and download the latest version of the OS for your BB. Once the file is saved to your computer, you need to install the setup files just like you would any other program. When completed, proceed to step.

1. Open BB Desktop Manager 2. Remove the battery cover, battery and micro SD card (if you have one) from your BlackBerry. 3. Connect the BB to your computer via USB cable (without the battery in place, just the phone's shell). 4. There should be a few drivers that will load automatically and the BB Desktop Manager will recognize your BB. 5. Close the BB Desktop Manager once it has been detected. 6. Go to the following path. C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\App-loader 7. Double-click the "App-loader.exec" application 8. Once it loads, the application will detect your BB and proceed to update your BlackBerry's OS. 9. If you are prompted to backup your BB data, please do so. If not, then proceed to step #10. 10. Select wipe (or secure wipe) to completely remove the existing OS and data.

A fresh, updated version of the BlackBerry OS will be installed on your BB. The process takes about 35-90 minutes to complete. Once done, the BB will automatically reboot and if you had an existing backup or created one before wiping/installing, you can now reopen the BB Desktop Manager and restore your backup to the BB.


As a side note, the BlackBerry Storm 9xxx series has been known to have many flaws. The Storm2 fixed many issues, but still left a lot behind.

If the problem persists after the update, check to see if you still have coverage under the manufacturer's 1yr warranty or if you pay for insurance service, your BB maybe covered under service replacement.

Tip

WINDOWS 10


WARNING: Backup your files and make a system image if you are converting to Windows 10 - especially if you have Windows 7. Windows 8.1 seems to update nicely but not the other older systems as Microsoft promised. Hold off a few months, if you have not upgraded just yet. Improvements are on the way. I had serious issues with my Windows 7 32-bit system going to Window 10. What is strange is drivers and software ran fine on the OS (and motherboard) under Windows 7 but under Win 10 things came crashing to a halt. Such a shame. So please take note.

EXTERNAL HARDDRIVE 160GB


then due to over voltage in the external ports the harddisk cable might have got burnt or may be where you connect the cable to the harddisk there in the circuit board the pins might have got touched with one another and it may have got short circuited and it might have got burnt away ...

i think your harddisk will be under warranty still as it is new one so just make use of warranty and get the harddisk replaced from where you purchased ...

if you dont have the warranty then the harddisk is dead you cant make it work by anyway even if you contact the technician too he cant help because harddisks cant be repaired once it is removed it is gone ...

i am sure that your harddisk will be under warranty if you have buyed the new one ...
