@LasseV.Karlsen I'd concur with @CanadianLuke on backing it up. I have drives that tick on one specific USB hub (powered, oddly enough) - preesumably cause of power issues so I'd try swapping ports if its a 2.5 inch drive

@CanadianLuke If it's dead then I'll take it back to the store, it has behaved like this from day one. SMART says nothing, Event Viewer says nothing. I have made extra copies of the files on it just to be sure but I think it is less likely it is dead on arrival.
@JourneymanGeek This external drive has its own power supply, next time it starts ticking I will unplug the usb connection to the computer just to rule out that the drive is somehow doing this itself. I do think it'll power down then just because it's designed to power down when not connected to a computer but I will try it just to be sure.

@LasseV.Karlsen Do you leave the drive plugged in after backups are done? No reason to keep it connected if it's just idling.
(Also decreases the chances of it getting infected with malware)

yep... keeping the backup drive connected means ransonware will encrypt your backups too

hey guys
I have a quick question
I'm using a desktop pc and it's internet connection is provided by a mobile phone over mobile hotspot
I have a app running on my 127.0.01:3000 address, I opened port on my firewall settings as well
The phone providing my PC internet is able to reach that address using my IPv4 address and port like 192.168.42.162:3000, but others in my phone's private network cannot access that address
Is there a way for me to open that for others?
 
depends if your mobile provider opens port 3000 or not
 
My mobile phone's IPv4 is 192.168.1.102, so If i can open port 3000 on my mobile phone others in that private network can access my application using 192.168.42.162:3000?
 
you will need to do port forwarding on the phone. i don't think that is natively available in android, you might need an app

@M.ÇağlarTUFAN it depends on the application... if it's binding to the 192.168 address, yes, but if it's binding to 127.0.0.1, you will need another app to forward data to it
 
@ThoriumBR I can bind the application to both addresses.
But when I choose both, they don't work
Seems like I need a application for easy solution
Can I serve my application over my normal IP adress which I use to connect WWW?
