freezing does not work all the time , use as a last ditch
I have recovered data using freezing
you will need a program like ghost to clone your FREEZER POP HD
to a new HD, IT is also a good idea to freeze the HD in a tighly sealed bag. Before freezing go through a drill a few times just like you were running from the freezer and hooking up the HD and cloaning, preset any jumpers. I found it easiest to use the secondary controller. Once the HD starts to thaw and moisture starts forming the HD STARTS TO SLIP BACK. You have minutes, once it has been done it usually can not be repeated. What does the hd do now is it clicking ? does the bios pick it up ?
