Re: My Hard Drive is About to Crash- What Should I Do?

Sometimes if the drive is about to die (or won't boot and DID die), you can get a few extra minutes of life out if it by putting it in a freezer bag and freezing it for a while (like overnight). May let it boot back up and get you 10-15 minutes to save critical things. Not a guarantee, but something to look at if it shits the bed before you save everything.

Speaking of which, shut it off now, stop reading these posts Go get the flash drive and save stuff. After that, play online all you like until you replace the drive or it fails.
