Hello guys, can someone please guide me what is the problem with my HDD.

From today my HDD making odd clicking sound, it's only 21 months old now, however i tested it with chkdsk command, Hard disk sentinel, Windows disk error, also Seatools but everywhere it passed, but i can not figure out why this Hdd is making clicking sound momentarily.

Seatools report - http://tinypic.com/m/jkiwix/3

Hard disk sentinel - http://tinypic.com/m/jkiwj7/3

If more info needed please tell me.

Someone's help would be very appreciated :)

If affordable, if possible, while the HD is still readable, usb or dvd boot Macrium Reflect or anything similar and do a one-pass sector by sector clone or full image of this source HD onto any reliable external target HD; if you wait too long, that clicking warning of a HD in the process of slowly failing can become the death bell of a failed HD.

Usually the clicking noise off a HDD is tell tale that it's going to give up at some point of time. I personally own a Toshiba Laptop HDD that exhibits a click when I operate on half of it's capacity. I know that it's a sign of failure which is why I've backed up my critical content in case it fails prematurely.

In the past 21 months how much more data did you fill it up with?
