...don't wipe my drive! I've had the lower memory slot issue on my PowerBook for over a year now and my serial number isn't in the range that Apple is fixing free of charge. I took it into an Apple store when it first happened and aside from the guy not being friendly, he said I'd have to pay to have it fixed. Today I decided to try taking it to the new Apple store 15 minutes away to see if I could somehow get a free used battery. I explained the memory slot issue and the guy was cool as hell and put in an exception and it's being fixed for free. Though I still have to buy a new battery. I'm pretty happy and hopefully I have it back by the end of the week. But I am concerned though. I did do a Time Machine backup before I left the house, but I have it exclude my downloads/torrents folder. I just downloaded some things last night that I haven't sorted through and backed up yet. And I put some unsorted pictures in the downloads folder. I'm really hoping it doesn't come back wiped. Anyone ever have Apple wipe a drive for a reason other than a bad/corrupt hard drive?
