    Thought you may find this interesting.

    The lass involved couldn't afford the recovery option so had resigned herself to losing all her stuff - so game on. Managed to get pretty much all of it back, bar a few photos that seem to be corrupt. Even those may have been corrupt previously however.

    Works for about 5 minutes out of the freezer - worked for about 3 hours in the freezer for the time it took to copy the data off :eek:

    After one of my Seagates mysteriously crashed on me, a friend of mine mentioned the freezer "trick" to me yesterday. I thought he was kidding!
