Dear... my hard disk is 80gb maxtor type and was worked until today. now, during copy of large files, such as 1gb, it makes bad noises. this voice is like to interaction between two metallic things, like this: "chick... chick. chick...chick...? this problem only occurs during copying large files. i run the check disk program on all derives but the problem not solve. i check all cables and ports related to hard, too. at the end i thank you for your help.
The drive is starting to fail. back up your data & star getting prices on a replacement drive. you can go to maxtor.com & download a promram called powermax. it is a dos based program that is made by maxtor to test there drives. it usually needs a floppy disk. there is no repair for this type of fault in a drive. but powermax may give you a little more info. on you drive. good luck
