One of the four hard drives in my desktop has been clicking a lot lately but the SMART test thingamajig is reporting no errors on all of the drives and I have no idea what what the values mean. So heres the status report for the four drives if someone could help figure out which one is going to die next that would be great. Thank you guys for the help.

Download SpeedFan (it's free and not loaded with crapware)

http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

Go to the SMART tab, select the hard drive in question and hit "perform in-depth online analysis of this drive." It'll open up a webpage comparing the values of your hard drive with the values they should be according to both the manufacturer and the average of other identical drives. You can also run extended and short hard drive checks from the same tab.

This? Not the same but it has a self test function etc.

If all hard drives have a similar age and type, consider replacing all of them.

SMART is not reliable and typically about 50%* HDD die without a SMART warning.
(*source from a Russian lab article that analysed HDD failures which I cba to link)

If your HDD is making funny/abnormal clicking noises during normal operations or during power up, it's almost a sure bet it'll die a sudden death somewhere along the road. Identify the HDD** making this issue and backup your data asap.
(**just bring up the Windows event viewer for HDD errors, you'll definitely get a few from the problem HDD).

Two previous posters are correct, An awful lot of drives fail without giving a SMART warning.
But from your link Drive A: seems to have a very long startup time, might be worth trying that first clone that first to replacement, and then see if your drives still click. But do consider replacement of all if they are important.

Cool, will try that later today if I have a spare drive. Do you guys have any recommendation for 1.5tb+ that will last more than a few months?
