MacMedics Locations in Severna Park & Lanham

This 13” MacBook Pro got soaked with Coffee! The customer had not backed up their data, which was especially scary as the display was not lit up! Thankfully, we were able to back up the customer’s data. The unit has so much coffee that it smelled like a coffee shop here while I was backing […]

“Trust, but verify” your Mac’s Time Machine backup drive!

This high-quality G-Tech hard drive was used for Time Machine in 2015 but was re-used from their previous Mac. However, it died somewhere along the way and stopped backing up. I wanted to get a reading on how many hours it had been in service, but unfortunately, it was too sick for me to pull […]

Why MacBook Pros and milk don’t mix!

Keep AppleCare on your older devices as it is now renewable

Here, I am talking about why AppleCare+ is such a good investment! This is the SECOND time this customer has had a liquid spill incident, and this time, it was a full glass of milk! Also, I talk about why it’s so important to have a backup of your data on newer Macs, as the […]

Time Machine

Apple's Time Machine is your BEST first line of defense against data loss!

Hello Mac friends, When customers visit us at MacMedics at checkout or check-in, I try to get all this information into customers’ hands, but there’s so much to talk about that I’ve found that there’s just no way to get all of this important information into the customer’s hands. I decided to make an audio recording you […]

Recovering data from a 27-year-old Mac? Sure thing, just another normal day at MacMedics!

We had the opportunity to help a MacMedics customer today retrieve data from a Power Mac 7200 From 1996 with a SCSI hard drive. The old Power Mac wouldn’t turn on, so we connected the SCSI hard drive to a Power Mac G4 with an internal SCSI card to retrieve the data. The PowerMac G4 […]

“My iPhone crashed on a Friday in the middle of moving! The Apple store was unable to help, and I had no iPhone backup to the Cloud. I arrived just before closing, and Dana stayed an hour past closing to save my iPhone and get all of my photos and data! I could not have […]
