So about every other hour of computer use my hard drive is making chirping and beeping sounds. It happens especially when I am accessing large files or moving large files. Windows says the drive is fine, and a SMART check says the drive is fine. According to the program HD Tune the drive SAMRT status is OK, but it says the spin retry account is above the threhold. The program also reports the drive has a power on time of 27450. I have no clue if that is minutes, hours, or days. I know the drive is old.
Should I replace it? All I have is a Maxtor 200GB IDE drive that was made in '06. It's an old drive as well. :/
