Hard drive sounds and what they mean..
Hi, so my 60G hard drive on a G4 dual 867 running OS10.3.9 starts making noises sometimes. Kind of like static or a "tchhhhhhttchhhhhhtchhhhh" sorta sound, like it's straining to do something. This goes on for a few minutes and happens when I am working. Kind of like the old days when you had a massive file and saved it, except that the files I'm working with now aren't that huge and the systems are much better now. Does anyone have any ideas? I've backed up everything in the case it's the HD about to die, and can still work on things without any other real probs. Any advice would be great. Thanks..
