My seagate FreeAgent GoFlex external hard drive makes a weird noise and I cannot access it from My Computer


Bad news.
If a hard drive makes a clicking noise, it's most likely lost forever.

I have been able to rescue files from a dying hard drive which refused to cooperate with Windows (however it didn't make weird noises). I just plugged it into an Ubuntu computer and managed to copy a portion of the files with a command line tool called rsync. About one third of the files were corrupted but the rest of them were ok. The copying took several hours to complete. The drive had a significant pile of bad sectors, so that's why...

Another (rather difficult) rescue tool would have been ddrescue. Using it would probably take an entire day or so. As long as the hard drive communicates with a linux computer in any way, tools like rsync or ddrescue could be used.

However, if a hard drive has reached a point where it makes some extra noises, it's probably way beyond any point of reasonable recovery. Assuming it does not communicate with any computer, be it windows or gnu/linux, fixing your drive could require some extra knowledge, hardware or money.

There are companies who are willing to fix that hard drive for an outrageous sum. Before even considering commercial data rescue options, you need to as yourself: "Is my data really worth that much?" If you are working on an important project and years of work is on that drive and there are no backups anywhere, letting a company take care of it could be your cup of tea after all.

After im on it for about five minutes it makes a loud roaring noise and freezes. The noise doesnt stop until i turn it off.


Sounds like a bad hard drive or a bad CPU Fan. Try a different hard drive in the machine, and see if the machine boots up without making that sound and locking up. If it does then that means the original hard drive is bad.

If its not the hard drive then, replace the CPU fan and see if the sound goes away, if it does then you know the CPU Fan is bad.

Hi, I was watching a movie of my Pininfarina 320GB hard drive and suddenly the movie froze and the hard drive started to make weird noises. I tried resetting it and plugging it back in but it still makes...


Needle? There is no needle.

Your Hard drive just died. It sounds like the bearings just gave out or something else happened to the Platen.

When it makes noises it means something is very very wrong.

I hope you backed up your hard drive. If you didn't you just cost yourself anywhere from $100.00 to $1000.00 for professional data recovery.

Time to buy another hard drive and reinstall your operating system.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

pls rate 4 stars.

Weird noises, not recognized by laptop


Hi,

This is a common problem with hard drives. Most hard drives (whether external or internal) that produces a "weird clicking noises" indicates a mechanical problem. Often this is the head arm trying to move from its position but failing to do so. What you are hearing as "weird clicking noises" are when it slaps back to its park position or when trying to move into correct position.

Should this be the case, am afraid that the HD is a goner. The normal course of action is to replace. If the data inside are mission critical, your only course of action is to avail of those data recovery by firm specializing in such but they are rather expensive.

Trying to use "data recovery software" might prove to be futile since as earlier stated, the problem is mechanical in nature.

You can of course still give it a try.

Should you feel adventurous, would be willing to experiment and gamble, pls post back as I may have not a permanent solution but a "down & dirty" trick of making it run long enough hopefully to get some of your data back. Again, this is a "hit or miss" and should only be considered if all else fails and you really want to get your files back.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
