okay. to get to the jist of it my macbooks hard drive has been making some strange noises. reguarally every few secconds it makes a noise thats almost like a "tick", reguardless of other disc activity that may be going on. this has only started occouring today. i havent restarted yet.. but fundementally it should not be making this noise. i was considering upgrading to a larger disc in the next few months, and if my disc holds out untill then, thats fine. but if anything should happen any advice. i'll shut down for a while and see if that makes any diffrence shortly.
