Question about Samsung Computers & Internet
If you can hear clicking then I am afraid there is a serious problem with the hard drive.
The noise you can hear is usually known as "the click of death" when referring to hard drives.
Most common causes are that the drive unit was dropped or mishandled or just plain old age
There is no known cure unless the data is mission critical
In which case you could sent it to a data recovery specialist but this is usually VERY expensive.
If you are advised to place it in a freezer or anything similar then that is up to you
but my advise would be to run from the person who may give this advise.
This is very old fashioned advice and meant for very old types of drives that used to get very hot.
If it a drive that was / is from an external enclosure then you could still use the enclosure
and just place a new hard drive in there.
