I was just defragmenting my hard drive and all of a sudden the drive just starting making one continuous click every 1 second or so; it sounded like it was stuck. I'm pretty sure it failed. You don't think I lost any of my data do you? Becuase right when I heard it start making that noise I shut the computer off. Now when I turn the computer on, it doesn't even detect the drive and the drive just starts making the continuous click again. It's a 250gb 7200rpm Seagate Barracuda drive. I really hope I didn't loose any data on the drive, because it was all pretty important.
Well I'm really bummed out right now; I have the hard drive in the freezer and I'm gonna leave it in there overnight. Maybe I can get some running time out of it so I can recover some stuff. At least all of my pictures are backed up and mos t of my music. It's a Seagate and it's still under warranty, so I'm sure Seagate will give me a new drive.
