I'd heard of people putting a nearly-dead hard drive in the freezer to temporarily revive it but always believed that it was geek folk-law. Imagine my surprise last night when a drive that would stay alive for about four minutes before starting to click and whirr (and become unavailable to Windoze) stayed alive for half an hour after a couple of hours nestling amongst the peas and ice-pops - I was able to clone it off to another drive and all is well!
