Re: Laptop hard drive crapped out
I've never heard of the freezer trick. If you do try it, let us know how that works out. But you can go to Best Buy or some computer repair shop too. The big name stores will usually have a way of retrieving data off of bad drives. They may need to send it out and it may cost a bundle, but if the data is that important, I guess it's worth it.
