Hi,

if i am reading the post correctly, your saying the drive makes noises that it didnt previously?
if so it could be a head crash. you could try some and diagnostic tools from toshiba to see if the drive is actually bad.
Or take it out of its case and connect like an internal drive and run recovery software on it.

You have a hdd failure here.
Best to get another hdd and (if possible) copy the data from your old drive to your new one.
