what do you mean by failed because it might be impossible? symantec ghost could be used to clone the hdd which should work basically as long as the disk will still spin. haven't really used ghost much but supposedly the old command line versions are better. i know this is a little off topic but im curious..... i remember talking to you before tomcruise3230 and im wondering if this is from that toshiba sattelite laptop.

well i heard if put it in a freezer for a couple of hrs. it might spin and you can then getthe data off the. if it does spin, should i put it in the laptop or the external hd as slave to get the most luck or it doesn't matter?
