I have an old Maxtor drive, nothing on it other then non important backup stuff. Here is the issue... The drive sometimes seems to struggle when waking up, I will hear it rev up then nothing then rev up then usually a beep beep, loud beep beep noise. Suggestions as to what should I do? Sometimes it does not do it and Often times it does eventually wake up and runs just fine but it has been like this for a long time. So the debate is this... do I trash the drive? or just keep using it? If I do trash the drive, is there a proper way to dispose of a hard drive, I know that I should wipe it clean.
