Default Hard Drive Click of Death Explanation and Live Demonstration

In this video, we explain how a modern hard drive operates, the causes for the click of death, as well as some common fixes that may or may not work. See a live demonstration of a SATA drive that has died, been opened, and we turn on for you.


Many of us have experienced the dreaded "Click of Death" that immediately tell us that our hard drive is dead or dying. What does the click of death look like? What causes it? Can I fix it by freezing my hard drive or giving it a whack? See a live demonstration of the click of death and hear an explanation for what causes it and some misconceptions for the common fix.
