Question about Hitachi Deskstar 7K80 Hard Disk 80GB, 7200RPM, ATA-6, 2MB Cache, Desktop, 20PACK (HDS728080PLAT200A3021020PK) Hard Drive
If it's clicking that;s a sure sign that it is faulty. As for recovering it, well the only way I know and it ONLY works IF the fault is on the Main Board, and NOT INSIDE the drive, then obtaining another identical drive, and swapping the controller boards, often will get the drive going again. However often they fail internally, and that sound you hear, often, are the heads whacking into the stop, inside the drive, which is not good in any case.
Most times though when a drive is like this, it is beyond repair. Unless sent back to the manufacturer, for data recovery. Which would be very expensive.
