Western Digital External Harddisk Has Sort Of Like Tickling Kind Of Noise


Mar 19, 2010
My Western Digital External Harddisk has certain sound like tickling kind noise on and off, I don't like to hear that, what I worry most is about my important data. Can someone help???
That clicking noise your hearing is the read and write heads of the hard disk.

If when in use you get a Loud Tick,Tick Tick noise its the read and write heads of the drive.
But if the drive is old as said above its a sign for you to back up all of your data quick.
And buy a new drive.
The magnetic platters are on there way out.
