It may be due to some dust in your hard drive. It reduces the performance of the hard drive.

It is highly unlikely to be dust in the drive. It would already be dead if it were unsealed enough to allow dust particles into the drive assembly. On many drives there is a carbon electrode in the center of the drive hub that has a copper strip resting on it (spring loaded) to drain static charge buildup from the drive/platter assembly which would cause data be be lost. These sometimes start to make noise as the carbon and copper parts wear from friction. Usually, it just gets irritating, but I have never had this cause lost data. Usually, when it gets too irritating, I just replace the drive to keep my sanity.

all the hard dish have very less life time of 3 to 5 years based on the usage .
before its getting dead you must back up all your critical data .
the sound from hard disk tells it needs replacement soon .
