I've used this a couple of times and I have a drive that I'm recovering
data from that I put a cold pack on it. Read some data until it fails.
Let it cool and freeze the pack, ad infinitum.

Once I recover enough stuff I'll let Linux 'fix' the drive and see
if it recovers.

You must be very careful to keep the electronics dry. That's not easy.
