I have a Hitachi Deskstar 80gb sataII 7.2k RPM 8MB Cache drive as my main HDD.

It is the only drive I have in this computer, and so far I'm getting 50~55 MB Read & 8~15 MB Write with a Max of 80 IOPS is this Normal?What's the Average 7k RPM Sata II HDD Transfer rates?

Also, occasionally the drive makes a semi loud "Click" sound & is very audible when Reading/Writing Data.

It seems you HDD is very old and as suggested it might end up one day with a big silence so take a backup and plan to buy a new one.............

Well I don't have much on here but a few installed games, it's a fresh XP install. But no worries, I have another drive someone gave me thats dead & I'm RMAing it to WD.This Hitachi Deskstar I'm using is kinda old and probly wouldnt be that great even if it was working correctly lol.

The Drive I'm RMAing is a Western Digital Caviar blue 160gb SataII HDD. No it's not the best drive but it's free \o/
