comment My Macbook Pro doesn't boot up
It's always better to know for sure than to "kind of know". I'd check the hard drive for bad sectors, but it seems like the SATA controller may be broken (if it's not the hard drive).

@Redandwhite Nope, they use base 10 to measure their storage, but our computers use base 2. This accounts for the discrepancy between what's printed on the box and what shows up in the computer. For example, 500GB (box) = 465.7GiB (computer) (and that is how they get you).

comment Outlook 2003 PST Size Limit
@milk Well if it's 6.6Gb, then it's 825MB, well under the 2GB size limit, so you should be okay. (Yes, I'm aware you probably meant GB, but I felt the need to illustrate the importance of using correct units).
