Question clicking sound of hdd

Jun 13, 2020
there is this clicking sound in my hard drive while not using any items from the hard drive (windows is installed on ssd) keep in mind all games work from the hdd is there a problem with the hard drive ?
Download Hard disk sentinel and check your HDD status.

If the files on HDD isnt sorted by the blocks next to another (they are seperated if you have deleted files, like example you installed 3 games and you delete the one that you installed second there will be space or in short your needle in HDD is jumping around making that "Clicking" noise).
