Feels good being master race.
I haven't heard that noise yet and SMART assures me that my HDD is at 100% health but I have heard some noises coming from it that were pretty worrying. I had to immediatly erase half my porn (drive was almost full) and now it doesn't happen anymore except when defragging.
What could be the issue?
How would one do that? I think it was because it was almost full. Like 30GB out of 1TB were left, once I freed up around 300GB the noise was gone. It's just there when defragging now.
This one looks good

Ducking dell putting the hard drive in the top on these low profile slimline shits.
How much longer does my hard drive have to live?
I've had this baby since 2006.
I recently had to take a bunch of old family photos and videos saved to an old 120gb hdd that had the click
I could have thought of a better way to spend 2 days
The way I see it, if it hasn't died by now it never will.
Are you fucking kidding me? It's the first time I've seen a thread like this on /g/. My hard drive has been clicking for five days now. I can't access Windows, only Ubuntu. A new drive is on the way.
Are you stalking me ? What the fuck, man.
Fucken Samsung. HDD is only (nearly) five years old and already noisy.
Guess there's a good reason they got out of HDD's.
Meanwhile, I have a 250GB WD refurb that I purchased 8 years ago that's still going strong.
>tfw seagate drive makes this fugly noise then a click when spinning up and takes a long time to spin up but you are too poor to buy a replacement
what does that noise mean? everything I own is on it but SMART says its all good.
Is it all good?
have the 80gb version of ops drive that I've used for 12 years still solid
power on-hours I think is 6 years or some crazy shit and it still passes SMART
I don't use it as main drive obviously
Seagate consumer drives automatically park the head after inactivity.
There's a lot of complaint about it and that's where the majority of the failures stem from. The whole inactivity-head parking is where Seagate gets their "eco-friendly" claim from.
Luckily their enterprise line is exempt from these silly things.
>recommending Seagate over Western Digital
same with seagate
>allowing hdd to talk to any networked things anyways
splain how firmware will control your software, unless you just let it do whatever and walk on you
its your hardware u can do anything with it
>mfw i have a wd green that started clicking
>it has all my music ive torrented over the years and cant find anymore
>needing to load your os more than once
You're doing it wrong.
>not updating or modifying windows and sticking to an obsolete and fragile cheaper mechanical format prone to several methods of failures with the only technological upside being that it's cheap
>thinking OS boot time is the only important thing that speed depends on
Actually all of Seagates most recent drives do this, including their performance lines. As was mentioned the enterprise drives have this feature turned off. Research this on google if you don't believe us.
