Nothing can cause panic like computer issues, especially when it comes to your hard drive making noise. Sounds like clicking, screeching and whirring are usually indicative of an impending storage failure.  If you hear noises like these and you are still able to access your files – backup immediately!!

The next thing you should do is power your computer down.  Don’t let your hard drive continue to spin if it’s acting up. Doing so could rob you of valuable recovery time.

Lastly, get your drive to a professional and try not to panic. I know that’s easier said than done but certified technicians, like the ones at Mass Data Recovery, are trained to get your data back.
