If you hear clicking sounds, loud whirring sounds, or screeching from your hard drive, you are most likely dealing with a hardware failure. This occurs when a single part of the hard drive stops functioning properly and damages the other internal parts of the drive. If you believe your hard drive is having hardware problems, stop using it immediately to prevent further damage.
Hardware damage is typically caused by:
- Power surges
- Water damage
- Physical damage (ie, dropping the drive)
