FROZEN!!!

Wow!! The feeling is just beyond human abilities to define it in their language. Maybe the closest is mirthful, just close. For those of us who tried it, we have a clean satisfaction in our minds, "Yes!! I did it again!!! And yes, it works, all the time...".

I'm talking about 'FREEZING YOUR HARD DRIVES'. Way back in school, I used to tell a few friends that freezing the drive brings it back to life. The smarter ones just tried it and shared that joyous feeling with me. The cowards sang all the same stories, "..but my dad", "oh!! I've never opened it before"(there's always a first time bozo!!), even worse, "dude, I don't think it really works!!".

Well, guys, its been done again and again and again. My brother Nikhilesh brought back a 7 year old to life, again after a recent crash. And this morning, I heard the familiar click again that said, "time to be FROZEN". And so, I wrap it up and throw it back into the freezer for coming back to life.

I'm ending this post here and the only feeling I have within me now is 'overflowing joy and satisfaction' (its like the froth that comes out of hot coffee and slides down the walls of the coffee mug... flowing and flowing and flowing... boy!!!)

Can i believe that the Hard Disk can be CURED of its bad sectors when I put that in a freezer.??

May be I will find this handy when my HDD gets some...

@Sharath : nope!! its not about bad sectors. its because the motor gets heated up and everything expands a little on heating, and that also causes the PCB not to function properly. So, atleast of what I know, its of no use for bad sectors. But hey, you can always try it and let the rest of us know... :P
