    when i read/write i can start hearing my external drive now (see sig for model)
    but im assuming this sound got more obvious overtime due to dust, etc..
    is there anyway i can dust this thing out and get it 'quiet' again?

    Take the external case apart, and clean the inside with compressed air and a toothbrush. :)

    It might also be worth running a diagnostic, as the drive may becoming suspect.
