The clicking sound you hear is unfortunately the death rattle of a hard drive. The sound is a regular click, click, click. This is because the heads of the drive can no longer find or read the sync track on the drive and usually means all the data on the drive is unrecoverable by external means. Hard drive labs can recover data from these disk failures but it requires them to dismantle the drive and that is usually a very expensive upwards of several hunderd dollars depending upon the amount of data recovered. You can purchase a replacement drive for the case and install it yourself if youare brave enough, for less than the cost of the complete package if you are good with a screwdriver.

Seagate requires both a model number and serial number to check warranty status. Once located you can check the warranty here:

if you are referring to a corrupted usb drive

click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes

automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start

you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive

I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box

OK hello I'm new to the tech support any way how much memory on the Hard drive and much is left on the external drive it may ask you to merge to tell you you need room for all files and that you may have almost reached the compasity on the drive

You cant. If your device was supported by windows 98, its a dinosaur. There would not be windows 7 drivers written for a device so old. If you can remove the hard drive from the case it is in and acquire an IDE to usb cable with a power pack to power up the drive you can read the drive that way, assuming the hard drive was formatted NTFS.

The sound you are hearing is known as the click of death. The hard drive is no longer any good.

it is difficult to recover it from that partition..use this software
"Recover My Files" if it is recover then ok otherwise use "Virtual Lab"
if it is not again recoverable then noway to recover. after all efforts one thing u can do is to quick format it and then try recover my files to recover from fast formated drive....but chances r very less something like wallpapers and songs can be recover.
Good Luck.
Hope the files will recover
