Freeze your hard drive for data recovery?

I woke up this morning to hear that horrible clacking noise (unfortunately, I’ve heard it before on an older computer) coming from my external hard drive and see a “delayed write failed” error message on my computer.  Fortunately, I don’t have anything critical on the external ... mostly just a lot of MP3s. I was hunting around the innertubes for data recovery options when I came across this blog post that says that freezing your hard drive works as a short-term solution for data recovery.  Judging from the comments on the blog post (and on other message boards I found afterwards) this appears to have worked for some people. I don’t think Rumproast gets a lot of geek traffic, but has anyone successfully tried this?  Also, can I just put the whole external hard drive, case and all, into the freezer or do I have to crack it open and take out the disk (or disks)?

We now return to our regular non-geek programming.

Geeker Sutherland

Did you ever wonder what the show 24 would be like if it was set in 1994? No?  Well, for starters, it would be much funnier.

My buddy and ex-workmate Will runs the wonderful geek blog sublimeguile and, for you Firefox users, he’s got an easy-to-follow guide on how to download video embeds from YouTube, etc.  Go check it out. His post about FFFFound images is quite eye-opening as well.
