  • 16:27:00 Great… The ext drive I had been running my iMac off has died too. Before I made a new clone. I do have recent time machine backup though.
  • 16:44:49 Trying to get restore going to brand new drive before leaving for work. Also need car jumped cause Alex turned my lights on. Great morning!
  • 17:01:06 Restore from latest Time Machine backup (about 27 hours old) to new out of the box external drive started. Expect this to take over 24h. :-/
  • 17:02:16 I don’t believe I had any critical changes on that drive in those 27 hours. If I did, oh well I guess.
  • 17:02:58 Initial restore estimate from Time Machine: 45 hours. It is dropping faster than real time though.
  • 17:07:07 After this I think I may have to suck it up and replace the internal drive. Unless the new external works wonderfully. But no high hopes.
  • 17:10:36 Jump start didn’t work. Guess I have to call AAA. Just awesome if this is something other than the battery. :-/
  • 18:08:01 Car jumped successfully by AAA. My wife’s car just didn’t have enough juice. 34 hrs 56 min left on Time Machine restore. Going to work now.
