Question Record hard disk sound

Nov 14, 2022
How can I record my hard disk noise . . .
My PC detail:
Optiplex 990
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40 GHz 3.4 GHz
8.00 GB RAM
Windows 7 Professional - 64-bit Operating System
I have installed Autodesk screencast "will this record my hard disk sound ?"
I've several times heard recordings people have taken from within cabinets, and unless it's the dreaded click of death for hard drives, it's really hard to dechifer the sound because all the background noise.

Unless the hdd itself contains very precious material you have no backup of, you could take it out of the cabinet - simply because you may isolate it from other noise.

But, why not rather go for being S.M.A.R.T. rather than noisy 🆒. I.e. use the hdd s.m.a.r.t. data in order to achieve it's current health status.
