From what I can deduce here, it seems that you the hard drive probably has a bad sector on it.
That clicking sound that you are hearing from the Hard Drive is coming from the read/write head inside the hard drive.
In this case, what I would advise you to do is, unscrew the hard drive case and remove the Hard disk from the case, connect it directly to a system, not externally or through USB this time around, then get a software called NTFS DOS Professional. It is a software that works like magic when it comes to hard drive repairs.
If you know any other hard drive utility, apart from this, you can also use it. I just recommend this personally because that is what I use.
Insert it into your PC, start up your CD-ROM and let your system boot from CD-ROM.
It works through DOS, and it should be able to help you with it.
If this does not solve the problem, then I'm afraid you might need to replace the hard drive.
And if it repairs it, I would suggest that you just retrieve all your valuable files from it and don't fully rely on the hard drive again because of the hardware error it has developed. Just keep using it as a second.
If you cannot do this by yourself, just get a very good technician to do it for you instead.
Kindly keep me posted about the problem.
Hope it helps.

Try deleting any partitions on the drive by using Control panel, administrative tools, computer management, disk management. now highlight the drive and right click and click on delete partition. Now create a new partition and see if it will do a full format on it. if not then its stuffed. you have no choice but to buy another drive.
