With the side off and placing your ear as close as possible to the hard drive, do you hear any "clicking" sounds?

There is a very simple way to determine if the noise is coming from the hdd, take a long handle plastic or wooden spoon and holing the spoon end against you ear place the other end against the hdd and if the noise is coming from it you will be able to hear it.

If you are concerned about the hdd find out what the manufacturer is and download their diagnostic tool and run it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
