I've run a live Disk Verification and "restore" on my Macbook and it prompts that my disc cannot be repaired. I have tried to "partition" but have close to no idea how to do it effectively and my files are not backed up. I have tried to reinstall Lion on my computer, but it came with the laptop when I bought it and I don't know if it is legal because the "reinstall" portion just keeps telling me to "Contact Apple" (though I no longer have Apple Care).
Is there anything I can do to save my files from being lost in the possibly corrupted hard drive?
I appreciate any help possible.
