      Not garbage at all. Your mplayer will play all modern wmv files,
      blastwaves won't. I just don't want to see core Solaris become just
      like Linux. Work like you do is invaluable (as is the work at
      Blastwave and elsewhere). Thanks a bunch!

        Finally I was able to recover most of the contents by connecting the
        disk to an usb adaptor, placing the disk in a sealed antistatic pack
        with a bag of cristals to keep it dry, in the deepfreezer with the
        cables connected to my notebook out of the deepfreezer and rsyncing it
        directory by directory so that it had time to cool down between 2 transfers.

        Thanks for all the advices I got
