    No special drive is needed. Apple uses off the shelf hard drives same as would be used in a PC notebook computer. The only requirement is that the drive is SATA and 2.5" form factor. Take a look here on the OWC site.

    Regards.

    Sometimes you can recover data from a "clicking" drive by removing it and placing it in an external USB carrier. My daughter's PC had one of those drives that clicked and then appeared to die. I removed it and placed it in an external carrier and was able to clone it to another working drive thereby saving all her data.

    Regards.
