Well I am having a 12" iBook G4. So what I want is that some solution for my problem a 60gb HD of it has got damaged and hence I need some method by which I would be able to repair the damages without formatting I tried using the disk repair but that also failed for me so what should I do next, can you all please suggest me something else? I also thought of replacing the hard disk but that is nearly impossible to do so. Even the disk utility fails to give a backup? So please suggest me something for the methods I am waiting to hear it from you all.
