Click Of Death

Click of death is a term that became common in the late 1990s referring to the clicking sound in disk storage systems that signals a disk drive has failed, often catastrophically.

The clicking sound itself arises from the unexpected movement of the disk's read-write actuator. At startup, and during use, the disk head must move correctly and be able to confirm it is correctly tracking data on the disk. If the head fails to move as expected or upon moving cannot track the disk surface correctly, the disk controller may attempt to recover from the error by returning the head to its home position and then retrying, at times causing an audible "click". In some devices, the process automatically retries, causing a repeated clicking sound.

The phrase "Click of death" was coined by Mac journalist Tim Robertson, and later publicized by David Pogue. Originally the term was used to describe failing Zip drives, but hard disk drives also became prone to the symptom.

Clicking hard drives are commonly the result of a mechanical failure. However, there are times when this symptom arises due to issues within the firmware, or system area, which prevent the drive from calibrating properly. In physical failures, the most common problem involves the read-write heads. Either the heads have become physically damaged, or have become dirty, or the preamplifier has failed. Unless the heads have started to come apart and contacted the platter surface, the problem is not as bad as it may sound. That's not to say the recovery from these failures is easy, but the noise you hear tends to exaggerate the actual symptoms. When customers hear their drive clicking, they often times will visualize the head scraping, or crashing into objects within the drive. There are times when that is the case, however, most of the noise that is heard, is due to the head assembly hitting a limiter as it sweeps back and forth across the platters looking for the information it needs to calibrate. This limiter keeps the heads from sweeping too far across the platter.

The important thing to remember is if your drive is clicking or making any unusual noises at all, you should not power up the drive at all. Continuing the operate the drive can cause further data loss.
