Lappy error? Very yes.

Computer froze up last night and couldn't reboot.

Booting in single console mode show it's encountering errors in the os records and journal blocks. Unable to mount disk. The Mac disk repair tool is unable to find/repair the issue, though.

Off to Apple store today to get a second opinion and see if they have any better recovery tools.

My main question is whether it's purely software or this might be a sign of disk failure.

That and how much I'll lose. Last full data backup was about two months ago. Synced some items last month. Backup up novel writing two days ago -- fortuitous launch timing of Amazon Cloud Drive! Will lose some short story work, my wiki notes, and (EEP!) this years tax document records. :[

More later.
