I bought a new Seagate Barracuda 7200.8, 400GB from here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370245251526&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT
after already owning the same version, but instead at 200 GB when it started occasionally making higher sounding clicking noises so I got paranoid because I have stuff on it though maybe to my mistake I shouldn’t have bought the same model again even though it was bigger as this one is also making clicking sounds moreso albeit at a lower volume. I got it because I wanted a new hard drive to transfer all of my stuff from that other clicking hard drive and I’ve managed to transfer most of the stuff over, but I’ll do it in stages as if I do it all-at-once I’ve noticed when it clicks for example when I transfer a file over that usually takes four minutes it won’t continue with the data transference until it stops clicking so I just drag the file folders over from the other drive’s window to the newer one. I’m paranoid because I want to give it a rest incase it makes it fail altogether and someone on shoutbox thought he/she read somewhere that there’s a problem with this hard drive. Is this true and will it last long?
