Possible HD Failure?

I have a noise that only occures in my computer when a Maxtor hd is running. I want to know if it is my hard drive failing so I put a video on YouTube (here) to see if anyone can identify it.

Thanks in advance!

More about possible failure
  1. Try downloading HD Tune
    www.hdtune.com
    Run the diagnostics, check SMART info...
    But back up your data anyway.
  2. Hi there,

    Here is an interesting web site by Convar from Germany that gives you audibly HDD sounds and what they mean - mostly bad.

    That way you can directly compare your HDD to known HDD failure sounds.

    Hope that helps!
