    Im trying to get my hard drive to work and its saying its corrupted..

    Ive got a few things on it I really would like to be able to save..

    I've heard you can throw it in a freezer and that might help it..

    Anyone know exactly how to do this?

    put it in the freezer with a ziplock bag for a night or 2, then put it back in the computer. It'll probalby buy you a couple of minutes

    Yea... You open your case, unplug the connection to the HD, walk to your freezer, open it, and throw it in, close it, and wait.. And reinstall vise-versa... :o

    H:\ is not accessible.

    The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable.
