if its a noise problem then chances are its already starting to fail. if you want to recover files from them you can try to use spinrite.

First of all, thank you for your answer. Can you tell me more about spinrite? IS it free software?

You are much better off just backing up your files and buying an new HD. You probably do not have much time with the one you have. Sounds like you have an internal defect.

In computing, a hard disk failure occurs when a hard disk drive malfunctions and the stored information cannot be accessed with a properly configured computer.A disk failure may occur in the course of normal operation, or due to an external factor such as exposure to fire or water or high magnetic waves, or suffering a sharp impact, which can lead to a head crash. The severity of disk failures vary The most notorious and famous kind is head crash, where the internal read-and-write head of the device touches a platter, or a magnetic data storage surface. A head crash usually incurs severe data loss, and data recovery attempts may cause further damage if not done by a specialist with proper equipment.A hard drive also includes controller electronics,which occasionally fail. In such cases, it may be possible to recover all data.Hard drive platters are coated with an extremely thin layer of non-electrostatic lubricant, so that the read-and-write head will simply glance off the surface of the platter should a collision occur. However, this head hovers mere micrometers from the platter's surface which makes a collision an acknowledged risk. Another cause of failure is a faulty air filter.filter. The air filters on today's hard drives equalize the atmospheric pressure and moisture between the hard drive enclosure and its outside environment. If the filter fails to capture a dust particle, the particle can land on the platter, causing a head crash if the head happens to sweep over it. After a hard drive crash, each particle from the damaged platter and head media can cause a bad sector.sector. These, in addition to platter damage,will quickly render a hard drive useless. Since hard drives are mechanical devices,they will all eventually fail. While some may not die prematurely, many hard drives simply fail because of worn out parts Many hard drive manufacturers include a Mean Time Between Failures figure on product These are calculated by constantly running samples packaging or in promotional literature.of the drive for a short amount of time, analyzing the resultant wear and tear upon the physical components of the drive, and extrapolating to provide a reasonable estimate of its lifespan. Since this fails to account for phenomena such as the aforementioned head crash, external trauma(dropping or collision), power surges, and so forth, the Mean Time Between Failures number is not generally regarded as an accurate estimate of a drive's lifespan. Hard drive failures tend to follow the concept of the bathtub curve.Hard drives typically fail within a short time if there is a defect present from manufacturing.If a hard drive proves reliable for a period of a few months after installation,, the hard drive has a significantly greater chance of remaining reliable. However, a hard drive can fail at any time in many different situations.

Dear Friend, You have finished your life of Harddisk , you have no time to run more your old HDD so you must buy the new hDD and copy the maater what you have Important because it may be that u not get your all the data of your old HDD, because i have lost my 5years of data in seagate 17GB Hdd, i have try a lot but not get the data of Hardisk, Do the needful as soon as possible , you have no time any time your HDD Stop and your work will hamper with your old data/files this is WARNING to you.
