It was making clicking noises. If a harddrive makes noises, it's 99.99999% of the time dying. It's on its way out, just forget it. There really isn't anything you can do to save it.

Back it up and replace it. Better to deal with it while it's still alive, rather than when you just saved something important that you didn't back up.
