The Sounds of a Dying Hard Drive

Ever wonder what a hard drive sounds like when it dies? If you've never heard it scream before here's your chance.

These are two sound files of a dying hard drive an editing place has. This hard drive is so bad that it's way beyond Disk Utility's help.

Sorry they're .zip files at a free hosting site, but they didn't want people streaming them over and over, and embedding them from their server.

83K - The idle sound of the dying hard drive. Download Link.

2.23MBs - The HD tries to read data, gives up, coughs and chokes, then kinda just gives up. Download Link.

Make sure your speakers aren't too loud as some of the sounds are pretty harsh and somewhat loud.
