the freezer trick -- my comment resurfaces
Authored by: tobyvoss on Nov 02, '06 04:00:05PM

great hint of yours of old! if only i'd looked for (or found) it about 3 years ago, when my pb's disk was about to fail.
i found out i could prevent its immediate demise by cooling the madly clicking pb with a former power-supply fan, while Data Rescue X was peeling off every bit of a bit, numerous times, it seemed. it was a successful but rather tedious procedure.
external casing would have been my next try at retrieving the data.
physically rotating the drive would not have occured to me at that time - DUH!
thanks for the parent hint, too!
