How to (Not) Fix a Clicking Hard Disk [Video]
Most people who have owned computers have had to live through the experience of a clicking hard disk. Not only is it incredibly annoying, there’s also the sensation that each click is a countdown to hard drive death. Well, an intrepid YouTube user has uploaded this handy video that will stop that irritating clicking once and for all.
