If you hear odd sounds coming from your hard drive, it’s likely that the unit is nearing the end of its life. A data recovery company, Datacent, has actually went and put together a list of sounds that they usually hear in their lab. This way, if you know something’s suspicious going on with the drive then you can take measures to quickly back up your data and see if the copy is usable or consistent. Data Cent has recordings for several models and major brands including Western Digital, Seagate, Samsung, Hitachi, and more – so you might be able to find what you’re looking for there.
