I the seagate st318417 narrow drive. wondering about two things. I'ved noticed that each time I click on a window I hear a click on my hardrive. a tech person where I work said it could be the heads realigning themselves. I think This started to happen after I used norton speed disk optimizer. Thanks much for any help.

if you are really concerned, you can simply backup the drive, and reinitialize it.

what did you use to initialize it when you installed it?

I used os 9.0 updated to 9.1. then I did a low level format and reinitialized with apple driver 1.7.3. This did solve the problem of need to boot up twice. However I still get that clicking sound each time I open or close any program or window. Is this normal?

I would update with Drive Setup 2.03--it's in the Utilities folder on your OS9.1 CD, or on our FTP site.
