    So yeah, as the title suggests i own a lenovo uhd 1tb f309 external harddrive,
    I mainly use it to see some video lectures stored on it(hardly taking 500gb).
    And now sometimes clicking sound comes from it, they are very rare, like 3 clicking sounds per 30 minutes.
    Is my hard drive faulty? Or its just normal? It is covered in warranty, and when i went to lenovo service centre, they told me to come when my HDD FAILS!! I dont feel that very prompt though.

    See what CrystalDisk Info says or even try Lenovo utility to set higher spindown time. I believe its an issue with too much lower spindown time and any small load or R/W will cause the drive to spin-up again. And its a laptop or 2.5" drive with 5400rpm.

    I used EaseUs software, and as per it there is no errors, and with any software the spindowntime cant be changed as it is a external hard drive, which has to be connected via a usb port:).

    I am really angry at this hard disk now, it has geiven me more trouble then my chemistry Home work.:p

    That is Windows chkdsk and not SMART readings. Use CrystalDisk Info or HD Sentinel.
    Organic or inorganic chem?
