put the hd in the freezer for 6-8 hours but have a paper/foam plate to rest it on when putting it in the freezer. when you take it out let it sit for about 30mins. have your external hd ready and power it up should boot up and then start copying everything over for your dear life lol. i have used this method for lots of my friends and has worked fine for me.
