I have several external hard drives, most encrypted with FileVault. Some with a 3rd party software called 'Espionage' (FileVault is better).
My MacBook Pro's internal hard drive suddenly started clicking and I can never start it up now. Hardware problem. Always starts clicking when I tried to start my MacBook.
I replaced it with an SSD. However, the old keychain encryption is lost. I still have the passwords but they are useless without the keychain encryption password generated by the computer that is stored in the damaged internal HD.
So am I in ruins with all my data from my internal HD gone and all my external hard drives?
