L.T.W. Posted February 2, 2009 Report Share Posted February 2, 2009 So I think my portable hard drive is about to die, the LED flickers red (non-stop) and I head the drive as if it was reading but it is not detected when connected to the computer. I read online that what probably happened is that the HD overheated and it wont read or something like that. And a solution a lot of people suggested was to put the HD in your freezer for a day and the plug it in the computer again. Before I do that, I'd like to know how safe is that procedure, should I proceed and freeze it? or look for another way to repair it? I have lotsa info that I didnt back up in there. Help?
