Specs: Windows 7
when i click on files to open then it does not open (file not found) thats the message i keep getting. no matter what type of document it is. i also cant copying anything off the hard drive. (same error message). The harddrive also starts to make a funny noise when u attempt to do either of these. what could the problem be?

The hard drive maybe malfunctioning and need replaced. You can try a program like PC Files inspector or Recuva both are free and word decent at file recovery. If you can get the files off the drive, then download the hard drive diagnostic from the hard drive makers website or download seatools from seagate it will test most drives. run the short test if it passes run the generic long test.
