comment Clicks or ticks every minute when HDD is idle
Thanks a lot for your answer. That was very helpful.. So why do you think the hard drive needs to park the heads every minute? Since they were parked once shouldn't it be enough, until I reuse it? Would the clicks I hear other times, other than the constant every minute click be explained that the heads are unparking, according to an action by my side? And finally from your experience wouldn't it be wise to leave it that way safe from bumps, or it's just useless and headache?

So the actual comparison should be between the size on disk (not the size) and the used space, that represents what's in fact the occupied space??

So 5 GB?? Isn't that quite much for tables and file system stuff??

Ok I won't, but don't you agree that unformatted space is inaccessible, there still something I can do??

@Karan I thought because it's unformatted, it's inaccessible for writing by the computer.. I was probably mistaken.. Would disk defragment to the recovered data or the partition do any better??

@week I did in fact use "Recuva" but when I try to scan the unforamtted partition in gives this message: "Failed to scan the following drives D: Unable to read boot sector" The thing is how does the disk write on unforamtted space. I kept it unformatted for this purpose?? And the strange thing also is that the files have correct space. Active test results shows them as they are in Excellent and good condition??
