I recently had diced way too many potatoes and had at least 2lbs left over. I had rinsed them and put them in the fridge in a container of cold water for use later that day, but realized that I still wouldn't get to cook them so I just gambled!

I let them drain in the collander on my sink and then tossed them in vegetable oil and filled (as flat as I could) about 4 quart-sized freezer bags.

I cooked them all within 3 days--fried :( The were good. There were only a few that were browned.

For foods like raw potatoes that hold fluid, try using a dehydrator for storing them.

I parboil my extra potatoes and then cut them into whatever shape I want......sometimes French fries, sometimes sliced. Then I bake them with a little olive oil sprinkled on top.

No, they don't freeze well raw. You can freeze mashed potatoes. Scalloped or au gratin potatoes freeze OK. For french fries, cut raw spuds into strips and fry at moderate temperature till the potatoes are pale and not crisp but partially cooked inside. Freeze at this point. A second frying will give you crisp brown fries.
