500 GB external drive gone bad

As of late… when I plug in my drive to any machine it makes a series of 4 to 5 clicking sounds and then starts a whirring sound (like when a plane shuts off it’s engine)…   I no longer see the drive listed when I click on “My Computer”   Is drive dead and do you think the date can be recovered? 

If you get Noises From the Unit Is Because It is ‘‘Defective’’

the Data is 100% Recoverable and You Can use a Data recovery Company Such as the ones in the Link Below…

Did you check to see if the drive shows up in Disk Management?
