“Clicks of Death” – what is it?

This is such a situation when the drive has lost its ability to read the servo track for proper head positioning. At the same time, the drive does not “see” where its heads are and interrupts the operation of writing / reading data. Then the heads are removed from the cartridge and a click is heard. In such a situation, the Iomega strategy involves repeating attempts to read data, having previously wiped the heads and returned them to their original position at the zero point. Continue reading
