wd3200aajb, click noise every 5 secounds, loaded or idle


#1

4 weeks old drive. Started last week. Intermittant blue screen crash.


#2

Figured out my own problem, my own stupidity!  I noticed the computer was only using 298GB of the 320GB. I had partitioned the remainder as drive H. After I had moved some files to this new “found” drive, the clicking noise started. I wet back and removed the files and the clicking stopped.

 I then reinstalled my old 320 GB drive, that I had thought had crashed, as a slave. Now I am able to access my old files from it. Everything works faster than ever and is totally quite.

Life is good!!!
