Something has gone wrong with my MacBook Pro’s Fusion drive after a recent update in which my laptop fails to load at all. There’s no specific cause as when I visited Apple they said there are a range of variables that could’ve caused this. The only solution they have is to wipe all the data from my laptop and install a new operating system. However, I’ve never backed my laptop before and would thefore be losing an extensive photo collection aside from other things which I am not prepared to lose until everything has been tried.
I have an Apple Fusion hard drive.
I am unsure of the disc size.
I am having difficulty reading files and accessing photos.
I can see files in folders, but file explorer has stopped responding.
Now my Mac laptop won’t start
There’s a message on screen saying the fusion hard disk check has detected an imminent failure and recommends immediate backup to ensure no data loss
My old laptop (MacBook Air) has stopped working. Nevertheless, I still need the data. I don’t need to fix the computer, since I already have a new one, but I need to recover the data from the old computer which does not work.
