I have a completely dead hard drive. While most of the files on there weren't critical, there are a few things on there I would have loved to grab. Someone told me about a trick where you can wrap the hard drive in plastic wrap and put it in the freezer for a couple of hours to buy a little time & grab things off of it. I know this sounds like a silly last ditch effort, but was curious if anyone here has tried it and if it worked. Are there other rumored tricks like this as well that might be worth giving a go?
