Question about Seagate (AU-80GBSATAHD) 160 GB SATA Hard Drive
At the time of booting there will be a noise in the hard disk
Does your drive make any sounds similar to these?
If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it if you need that data.
If not - try to remove the drive from the enclosure and connect it directly to the computer to recover your files.

Hard disk mechanical noise like clacking or slapping and whirring or fast clicking sound is caused by the actuator arm slapping against the stops.
Whatever is causing the noise, it is indicative of impending problem. Your best course of of action would be to immediately back-up the data stored in the said drive while it is still readable. Of course eventually, you would need to replace the drive. If it is your main drive, you can also clone it to a new drive and your swap will be relatively easy.
Good luck and kind regards..
