Recently my Mac OSX Snow Leopard crashed but I was able do a reinstall from the original factory restore disc. I assume the trouble was caused by a Mozilla Thunderbird/Firefox drop-down demand for a “Crash Report”. The crash seemed to cause the Mac to lock up and could be shut down only with the infamous 8-second long press.
- Since Day One I had used an external drive to save about 22,000 photos but I cannot access them although I took care to disconnect that drive from the Mac before the re-install.
- I also lost handshaking of Bluetooth between Mac and Samsung Android tablet.
Your kind advice would be greatly appreciated.
