hello.. I have a weird problem
I have an external seagate freeagent goflex 1 TB usb 3.0 HDD and it was working finely for about a year, but suddenly today when I'm trying to copy files to it it makes a weird noise and the copying process froze (I've tried several times with different number of files, sometimes the copying completes but in most cases doesn't)
I tried the check desk and error-checking options and nothing happens (some noise is there while I'm doing this)

p.s. my HDD is approx. 90% full capacity and there's still about 90 GB free yet, and also there's no problems when I'm trying to copy from it (no noises, no copy-froze/interruption) (as for the files I tried with)
