For those of you who are not aware there is a last ditch technique that can be used to try to extract information from a failing hdd, this involves putting the hdd in a plastic bag and placing it in the freezer for about thirty minutes. This contracts the disks allowing them to spin, usually for a very short period of time. The link that I've provided below will show how not to do this, enjoy. :thumbsup:

Hmmm...? I'd use "carbonic anhydride" instead.
