Hi Guys,
I am getting a sort of clicking noise from my 80 Gig Primary HD , every now and then. Do you think it is on its way out. I must admit, it is only 1 year old. Any ideas please.

Cheers.

HeyGuys,
thank you all for the advice and help, I really appreciate it. I think my assumption was about right. I will now start to back up as much as possible.
Cheers.
