Clicking sound(actually the arm is making that sound) indicates the hard drive is bad(or going to be bad) or it's not receiving enough power. Did u enable S.M.A.R.T? This is the right time to start saving the data somewhere else.

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.

Immediately back up all important files.
Then consider replacing the drive very soon, clone it to the new one if it is still working when you get the new one.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
