    I liked this episode – great reminder to back up before anything major. What a major pain! Thanks and happy holidays all at FMEO. I’m looking forward to more next year!

    • Hi Lisa!

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. You got out of it exactly what I wanted everyone to take from my little tale of woe: Back up! (and then make sure your backups are good…)

      Since then, I’ve upgraded 2 more Macs to Yosemite — but not my 27″ yet — with no issues what-so-ever. But I did make sure the backups I had on hand were successful ones first. In fact, one (my Dad’s) I made him buy a NEW, larger, backup drive before proceeding to make doubly sure he wouldn’t have the same issue I did. :D

      Thanks for all your support!
