Do not freeze your Seagate hard drive


Seagate manager Pete Steege tried to store his Seagate Go 320GB hard drive in ice for 100 days in order to prove that Seagate drives can withstand all manner of torture. Sadly, it didn’t quite make it. When he cut the drive out of his ice rink (!!) he cut the bag which wet the drive.

Plugging it in resulted in a device failure and absolute proof that you shouldn’t drop your drives into freezing pond in early November.
