Hi, my laptop drive is old (over 30,000 hours on it) and last night every 20 minutes or so I would hear it click once or twice. Still works fine but I shut it right down so I can back up my data since I have not done so in about 2 weeks.
I have a few spare brand new hard drives I was going to replace my old one with the new one but I was wondering if one is better then the other. They have visably different circuit boards on them and one has a higher amperage rating then the other one. So I was wondering what one is best to use?
left side- momentus 500gb, manufactured july, 2012, 5 volts, 0.7 amps
right side- momentus 500gb (also says 5400.6) manufactured august 2012, 5 volts, 0.451 amps
I know both drives are only a 5200 rpm but my original was also 5200 and original ran fine
