Macbook Pro 13" Hard Drive Cable | Apple

B Pearce
Apple let us know today that MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) models sold prior to 2016 will be covered by a Repair Extension Program for the hard drive cable issues. They've asked that any repairs made to that model also replace the cable as a matter of course, even if it does not exhibit symptoms of failure.
(That this program only covers this specific model. Other unibody MacBook Pro models from 2009-2011 are not included in this program.)
The note also mentions that "If the customer inquires about a refund for a prior front hard drive bracket repair, have them contact AppleCare."

OS X Yosemite, Core Storage, and partition woes

OS X Yosemite, Core Storage, and partition woes | Technology | Scoop.it
In the past, I’ve made a new partition on my drive, installed the new OS X (like Mavericks), copied all my files from the old partition to the new one. Once I’m sure that all is fine and dandy, I will go back and delete the older partition and give the space to the new one.

But when I tried this with 10.10 Yosemite, I ran into a new problem. Partitions were no longer flexible. I couldn’t delete or resize any of them. I found this out after spending a full day getting the new Yosemite partition just right.

HD -> SSD migration procedures (and FileVault)

HD -> SSD migration procedures (and FileVault) | Technology | Scoop.it
There are many different replies to this simple question. Here is what I would do, along with justifications:

Procedure:
1. Get your system ready to be cloned. Deauthorize / Deactivate software. Put everything in a known good state. If you have email that downloads to your local disk (and deletes from the server), disable access to the Internet - unplug the ethernet and turn off WiFi, or just power down your router.
2. Install OS X on your external SSD. Do a minimum installation, but make sure that the OS X version matches the version on your internal hard disk drive. (e.g., Mavericks -> Mavericks)
3. Disable the "Create an archive of Apple's recovery HD Volume" preference in Carbon Copy Cloner, then use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the internal HDD to the external SSD.
4. Boot from the external SSD and check a few files to verify that they are intact.
5. Exchange the HDD and SSD between internal to external mounting.
6. Boot the external HDD and check a few files to confirm that your original data (which is now the backup) is accessible and intact. Shut down the Mac.
7. Unplug the external (now the backup!) drive from the Mac.
8. Boot the internal SSD drive and set it to be the startup drive.
9. Enable FileVault on the internal SSD drive. This may take some time, but you can use the Mac while FileVault runs.
10. Authorize, activate your software. Reconnect the internet. Enjoy your newfound disk speed!

Macbook Pro Hard Drive Cable Failure

The 13-inch MacBook Pro from 2012 is somewhat notorious for the failure of the hard drive cable. When I see that model come in the shop with a hard drive issue, that's something I'll usually check first. (We often have people referred to the shop from Apple Retail with hard drive problems that turn out to be cable issues.)
Other 13-inch MacBook Pro models from 2009-2011 are somewhat less likely to experience this problem (the larger MacBook Pro models even less so), but I've seen this across the entire range from time to time.
In my experience as a repair technician, issues with the cable rarely seem to affect throughput (apart from when there is none!), but I have seen failed installations, and difficulties with formatting and partitioning.

Bypassing the cable by booting from your internal drive via an external enclosure or drive dock isn't always possible, but that's the best way to evaluate the health of the drive versus problems that may have been created by a bad cable.
