My hard drive is making crunching noises. Is this an easy swap in/out?
Does it use a regular 2.5 inch notebook drive? Is there any problems
with removing the old drive from the caddy and putting a new drive in?

It's a regular 2.5 inch drive; no problems getting a replacement into the
caddy.

If you need to copy the data first, I suggest a 3.5 - 2.5 converter in a
desktop machine would be useful.

regards,

Pete.
