Liquid Spillage and your Computer:
The most dangerous thing that can happen is liquid being spilled onto a laptop while it is running. It can quite easily cause a short circuit inside the portable computer, which will likely damage its internal components and in the worst case, render it completely unrepairable or beyond economical repair. If the liquid spill isn’t professionally removed from the laptop, it can very easily cause further damage through corrosion over time.

Damage to the hard disk drive, where your important data is stored, depends entirely on the quantity and type of liquid that entered the machine and whether that liquid worked it’s way into the drive casing itself. The hard drive is a metal enclosure inside the computer, and it’s fairly easily transferred to another working computer if no liquid reached it and it’s in 100% work condition. Although, if there’s a possibility that some liquid entered the drive enclosure and seeped into the drive, it quite likely that nothing can be done by the user and they will be facing serious and permanent data loss.

Recovering from Liquid Damage

The only surefire solution to liquid damage problems is to have an off-site back up or an external hard drive back up of your most important data at all times and regularly updated. Your primary concern should be your data and in case of an accident to recover the lost data effectively, so it can be transferred to a working computer. It’s again highly likely that a damaged computer cannot be recovered and cannot be repaired.

If only a small amount of water (ie, 1-6 drops) has been spilt into the computer, it may be possible to dry it out thoroughly and continue using it - assuming it will start up ok and operate normally. Its advisable to plan to transfer all data off the computer as soon as possible, as we mentioned earlier, corrosion may still be an issue as time goes by.

Hard disk drives in the MacBook range of Apple portable computers that have been accidently damaged by liquid are useless. It is a possibility for a specialist data recovery company to recover the data on the drive, but the expense involved may make it uneconomical for the average home user or small business. In an event where the data must be recovered regardless of cost, it’s best practice to immediately seal the drive in an airtight container and deliver it to a specialist fast.

Liquid damage to any MacBook or MacBook Pro is very serious, and will not be covered under any manufacturers' limited warranty. The chance of a computer continuing to function after extensive liquid damage is very small, and the user should be prepared to buy an entirely new machine unless they have a warranty agreement that covers accidental damage.
