    Default RIP 160gig Maxtor...

    ...So my maxtor kinda died the other week, it lets me look at what on the drive but after about 5minutes it just locks up. Makes some really nasty scratching noises aswell, anyway of getting the data off of it? Ive tried copy and pasting onto another HDD but it just sits there saying preparing to move for ages.

    By the way its a 160gig SATA.

    did you try copying files off in small chunks and not loads of files in one go?

    I've heard some people try some drastic stuff in your situation, like putting it in the fridge and then quickly installing and try to rip off the data while its cold, no idea if it really works though.
