Seagate 2 tb external hard drive beeps and clicks


Hard drives are easily damaged when dropped. The clicking noise is known as "The click of death".
This hard drive cannot be fixed. You need a new one.
If you need to recover data from this hard drive, then there are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

I bumped my Seagate 1 TB USB 20 Hard Drive off my computer. I tested it immediately and it was still detected by my PC and seemed to be fine. Later I heard a beeping sound coming from it and it is no...


In my opinion, the r/w heads have crashed on the surface or malfunctioned so that the voice coil has retracted the heads and will not allow the disk to function, thus the beeping. You have to decide if the data is worth recovering, i.e many bucks for a recovery company to get your data. If you open it up, it will allow dust in that will contaminate the data. In order to recovery the data, the disk has to be opened in a ultra clean environment and the disk taken from that drive and placed in another drives electronics and heads so that the disk will operate and your data can be copied out to another drive. As you can see it is a labor intensive process that will cost. Also the data recovery company cannot or will not guarantee success, and you still pay for them to try.

You need to backup your files due to the failure problem and also you can check the warranty of your hard drive from seagate. If it is still in warranty you can send the Faulty Drive to Seagate and they will replace it with a new one. You can register tour product here and check the warranty.
