24 hours would be the ideal time.....Seagate and WD are the top two companies....third i would assume either Samsung or Toshiba

Well if it was all music, then I have a solution to save the music, ipod owners may know, w/ music on the ipod, the music cannot be uploaded to a computer. But, I've recently found some programs on download.com to allow u to do that. Problem is I dont remember their names, but you can just look around.

I wouldn't consider any brands, besides Seagate, WD, and Samsung hard drives.

krazyq, I hope you didn't just put the hard drive in the freezer. I hope you had put it in a zip lock bag, and tried to seal it as much as possible, before putting it in the freezer.

I don't use registry cleaners, or any of that type, since I prefer not to touch the registry. Never had a problem with my computer, anyway.

In the summer season, I have trouble sleeping. So it's normal for me, to be up all day and night.
