Seagate HDD not identified in Microsoft Explorer
I have a seagate backup plus 1TB portable drive, purchased in October 2017 and used once to backup data by my wife. It is probably less than 10% full.
At first attempt to retrieve the data, today, the drive is not identified in MS explorer but does register as a USB device. The drive makes a clicking or ticking noise.
I’d welcome some guidance as to what I can do to retrieve the data.

Simpletech ticking noise
Simpletech 320GB USB external harddrive. Red light comes on when connected to a PC but it just makes a ticking noise and can’t be seen by the computer. It’s probably a mechanical fault.

My external hard drive is a simpletech and is not recognised by any computers and makes a dodgy sound. Like regular beeps, every 1.5 or 2 seconds. Sometimes the sound stops and then if I turn it off and on again usually the “beeps” will come back. The brand of it is Iomega. I’d love to get it fixed if possible and get the data recovered to a RAID 5 server or a Simpletech hard drive.
