Hard Drive Noises that Need Data Recovery Service


Oops! You just dropped your portable hard drive. It happens. And that super-protective, extra-strong casing won’t always protect a dropped hard drive.

Now, you boot up your computer and the portable hard drive is making weird noises. What types of noise?

– Clicking

– Grinding

– Beeping

Most hard drives are fairly silent during operation. You may hear muted clicking and a soft hum when the drive is in operation. That’s normal. But louder clicking, grinding, or a click-whir sound, along with beeping, are bad signs.

Clicking from your Hard Drive: Clicking often means the heads are going bad. When you dropped the drive, the heads could have become damaged.

Grinding: Again, bad heads may rub against the disks in your hard drive, making grinding sounds. 

Beeping: If your hard drive is beeping, it could mean the seek arm is looking for disks to read and can’t find them. Internals were damaged when you dropped your hard drive.
