If it's ticking, that's usually a sign of a dying HDD mechanism. I have also heard of drives ticking that do not have enough power going into them from failing power supplies. But every ticking HDD that I have ever come across has been a bad or failing HDD itself. The only way you can get data off the drive safely, is to have a recovery service get the data off. Recovery services are expensive though. They take apart your HDD in a clean room, take out the platters and put them in a healthy mechanism in order to get off the data.

You can try to get data off yourself by installing the bad/failing HDD into another PC as a secondary or slave drive, but you're risking losing the data the longer you use the failing, noisy HDD.

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!
