I have owned many Asus boards and currently use a P5Q Deluxe but wanted to\nshare the following.\n\nI had an old Maxtor 120gb drive connected via usb that made a very loud\nclicking noise every few seconds but I needed to get some data off of it. I\ntried a different enclosure, cables, usb port, you name it, but nothing\nhelped. The data would start to copy and that clicking noise would halt the\ntransfer. I was ready to use a hammer on the drive and trash it. I decided\nto flip the drive upside down and fire it up and I recovered the data and\nno clicking noise. The point is that if you have a bad drive and need\nsomething that is on it try anything that may cause it to work long enough\nto get your data.
