Noisy hard drive usually means failure is on the way.

You can download drive diagnostics from the manufacturer of the hard drive website.

Wow. Quantum, that's old. She's getting old and those bearings are getting hotter and hotter and wearing more and more. Eventually the motor will not be able to turn the spindle anymore and you'll be sore outta luck. Get an new drive ASAP. And a new computer while you're at it...

Most drive manufacturers have cloning software available for download at their website for cloning the old drive to the new drive. Check the new drive manufacturers site for cloning software.
