It only benefits a drive that's mechanical. If it's bad or dieing sometimes freezing it helps you run the drive a little longer to access the data and copy it over to something else.

Otherwise you shouldn't do it.

It freezes.


It has been said that this will sometimes give you one final run out of a broken HD--but I've not seen evidence to prove this.

I've tried this once and it didn't work. it has to be a specific failure for this to work.
