check your power settings in windows control panel and see if you have it set to turn off harddisks after a certain amount of time.
thats what it could be or your hardrive might just be dieing

most hard drives dont have the 3 year anymore. Maxtor dropped it, if you can RMA a fujitsu its a miricle lol
It's under warranty and most hard drives come with 3yrs.warranty anyway.

You can test the hard drive for fault by running testing software that is available free from this site http://www.passmark.com/
Some drives make that sound when the mice running on the belt bump into each other

I guess I will keep an eye, or ear on it to see if it gets louder in the next few weeks. I do plan to backup everything, just in case. Have a Happy Holiday everyone. Mike

I am pretty sure the jumpering has nothing to do with the squeel, but I thought I would ask anyway. Thanks again !!
