Is your hard drive clicking or making a continuous ticking noise or grinding sound? Worst yet, do you smell a strange burning plastic odor? If so, your clicking hard drive likely has physical damage and will need to be sent in to a data recovery company for clean-room work. Contrary to what some other data recovery companies may tell you, a clicking hard drive is going to need a hands on approach to rebuild or repair the hard drive, then attempt to recover the data. Most companies focus on the less complex' data recoveries and do not have the technical experience to handle hard drive failures of this type.
When your hard drive fails and you hear a clicking or ticking sound, it is very important the hard drive be turned off immediately.
Ignoring or leaving a hard drive clicking will eventually make all the data unrecoverable. Hard drive clicking sounds, such as tapping, ticking, clicking or grinding, are generally the result of bad heads being unable to calibrate with the media servo tracks, which makes the hard drive keep resetting. A grinding sound is usually the result of a head crash and a requires specialized data recovery techniques to recover data.
