A possible way of getting data off a dying hard disk
Authored by: yubbie2 on Nov 01, '06 08:16:17PM

I've done the freezer trick twice - once with an iPod, once with an iBook. Both times just wrapped it in a towel and tossed it in the freezer for an hour or two.

100% data recovery, both times, with no side effects. Of course, I could have just been lucky. So be careful.

However, it's a great party story to tell...
