  1. Hi

    I have a seagate HDD thats been working fine for >6 years now, with Windows 2000 and XP.

    A little while ago it started making a noise [like wind blowing thru a small opening] on PC startup ... it used to hang for about 2 seconds but then start working again. This continued for a while till recently when the PC stopped 'seeing' it at all. Now when the PC starts I still hear the same noise but after a while everything is silent and the PC cannot boot from it.

    What are my (cheap) options if any to copy data from this to another HDD?
