I have a 2TB WD MyBook connected via Firewire. It is set-up as a 2TB drive (striped) rather than a 1TB drive (mirrored). It is less than 6 months old, contains less than 1TB of data, and is used mainly to store & play video media.
Reads and writes work as expected, however reads have started making an odd clunking noise. At first I thought it might be the Click of Death, but wikipedia's article has a recording of a WD drive failing and my drive doesn't sound like it.
Should I be worried, or is this common for striped drives? Is there anything I can do to help quiet the sound?
