comment Rescue data from damaged hard disk
and depending on the hard disk's temperature, it's "audio fingerprint" (the noise it makes when starting up/trying to start up) will vary. This is a desperate thing to try. Kids don't try this at home etc.

comment Rescue data from damaged hard disk
termal shocks do sometimes work. I've had a hard disk crash hard on me and really needed some of the data on it (long story short, my other hard disk died in another machine a few days before). The disk wouldn't boot. Two hours in the fridge, dry it with paper if needed when it comes out, try. Rinse and repeat. After the third try or so the disk booted. Once. I had the time to 'dd' over the network it using a Linux bootdisk. That hard disk never ever worked again. I'd say out of 5 hard disk I tried this on it worked twice.

@vivekvc: thanks Vivek. This allowed to see that now apparently my TXT correctly propagated. I still need to verify if it is effective and I don't know how to do that yet :-/

@John Gardeniers: I added 'How to format' in the question's title but where to put is still an important part of my question. Actually I think Google gave me an already formatted line and it's just about finding where to put it and how to do the escaping :)

so in my case simply quoting fields like this would work? @ 3600 IN TXT "v=spf1" "include:_spf.google.com" "~all"

+1... But I'm still confused. How comes there are "a" and "mx" in your spf TXT record line?
