Installed OS X Snow Leopard and I am at version 10.6.2. Since the new software was loaded, the hard drive runs continuously. It is a click click sound from the hard drive. It does not seem to harm anything, it is just extremely annoying.

Any suggestions?

If you are getting a clicking sound from your hard drive - back it up NOW.

It probably won't harm anything until it just stops.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
