Clicking hard drive  



I already know the answer, but I thought I would put it out there. I have a western digital portable drive that has started clicking. Is there nothing that can be done? If I knew What was on there I would have a little bit more peace of mind, But I have no idea. I don’t want to spend thousands of dollars for data recovery.

Sadly, yeah, I think you know the answer: that's (very likely) something akin to the Click of Death

I'm sure one of the various take-it-apart-in-a-clean-room companies could salvage some/all of the data, but that's likely the only way to go about getting it.
