Hi All,

Recently I noticed that an old drive is clicking 3 or 4 times when it is 
powered up.  Thereafter is stays quiet.  I think it is a mechanical fault, 
because I placed the box on its side and the drive did not click when booting 
up.

I ran smartctl short/long/conveyance tests and no errors are reported.

In your experience is this something to concern myself with?  There is not 
business critical data on the drive at present.

Mick
