Re: Seagate hhd dead?
From what you said, YES, it most definetly sounds as if your drive is going to fail shortly.
I would back up your data immediately .
And your saying you can hear the drive making unhealthy noise??
if you can hear it making noise thats 2X as bad, because its also a mechanical failure so you will have to replace the drive.
If you cant hear it, then i would perform a low level format, then i world format with NTFS and reinstall Windows.
Good luck bro
