Can internal hdd survive in the cold?

Wу have the Ole' Windows 98 that we stopped using like 12 years ago. We put it in the attic and that's it.
It spent many years in the very cold invirioment. Is there any chane that hd is still operable?

I can't say for certain. The internals (read/write heads and the disks themselves) should be sealed and mostly unaffected, assuming that the heads were moved to a safe position when the PC was shut down the last time. I'd recommend removing the HDD from the PC and inspecting the outside for signs of corrosion or other defects. Some old HDDs had exposed circuit boards on the underside, so be sure to check that as well.

If the HDD looks okay, then leave it at room temerature for a couple of hours or even a whole day. This should allow any moisture that might have condensated on the cold HDD to evaporate as the HDD warms up. Unless there's some vital data on the HDD that you absolutely need to recover, you might as well try applying power to the HDD and see/hear if it spins up. If it doesn't spin, this could mean that either the motor doesn't work anymore (could probably be fixed) or the read/write heads "crashed" and are now stuck to the surface of the disks (meaning that the disk surface has been damaged and at least some parts of the disk have become unusable).

Thank you for advice I'll do it!

There's no vital data. Just some nostalgia things I want.

With Imgur, when you linked an image thumbnail on a forum, it would go right to the full size image. However, it now goes to the post instead.

Got back into reading comics again.
Still gotta read in small portions otherwise I get way too tired, forget, and have to reread to understand what happened prior, and it becomes this annoying endless loop where I make no real progress.

Makes me super happy that I got that back.
Maybe books will come later, we'll see what happens.

I've been saving Kneller's happy campers (it's fairly short) as the test book for awhile now, don't want to test it just yet.

Early this year I sold off my collection of about 600-650 comics. Mostly Marvel from 70s thru the 90s. I hadn't read them in about 10 years. But now I miss them a bit.

My dad used to collect comics, and he had x men #1 in mint condition, he's still upset that he sold it for a couple of 100 dollars way back when.

I use audiobooks sometimes, I don't like them as I absorb probably 20% of the information because of personal issues, it's more than nothing, but not really worth the hours of sitting or walking it takes to listen. I used to hate ebooks, but it's far cheaper, and for some reason audiobooks have made ebooks more likable, idk why, maybe because I use my phone a bit more? Anyways comixology has a good selection of comics for 5 or 6 bucks a month, and I'm sure there's others.

I've listened to only 4 audiobooks. I'm picky about the reader's voice so I have passed over books that looked interesting but after a chapter or two decided the reader's voice broke the experience.

I had X-men 1-9 in reprint and 10-52 in originals. When the prices spiked before the release of one of the X-men movies I decided to sell them. I couldn't find them anywhere after tearing the house apart 3 times. I have no proof but I think my youngest brother who married a girl with severe money spending issues stole them and sold them to help them stay out of bankruptcy. If I happen to outlive him I'll ask him on his death bed if he took them. ;)

My dad was a comic collector in his teens. When he came back from the Korean War he found out his mom threw them out along with other things he left behind. She felt it was time for him to grow up. He would lament to me and my brothers how he had all these big dollar comics that would have been worth thousands of dollars each. 1st and 2nd issues of the major superheros of the time.

I mean, I'm a ortho (though I am doing late night consultation on the ER because money) so I was busy amputating a third of a left leg a drunk guy fucked up in a car crash. You want to loose faith in humanity? Be a doctor. Or a policeman I guess.
