Hi everyone,
I am new to this Forum, so I'll post my problem here, since the other sections are locked for newbies.

My Problem is, since about a week, when I start bitcoin.exe my Harddrive starts to click and everything from that harddrive becomes super slow and I cannot properly access that harddrive anymore. I have seen a forum post by another member with the same problem, but obviously it was not solved. I already backuped my data, because I also thought it wold be a bad section on the harddrive first. But then I installed bitcoin on another harddrive and the same thing happened again with the other harddrive. As soon as I shutdown bitcoin.exe via the task manager, the harddrive gets back to normal and every runs smooth.

Did anyone experience the same problem? Can anyone help?

Backup everything immediately! There is a good chance your drive is about to die. (Bitcoin unrelated.)
Clicking drives is always a bad signal.

First reply wins.  High chance it has nothing to do with Bitcoin. Higher chance the hard drive is on the way out.  Back up now.  It may still work for the next month, but when a HDD fails, you never know, just back up and get a new one now.

Hi and thanks for your replies.

But I am pretty sure that it is bitcoin.exe - related, since I have tried 3 Harddrives already. That means when I
start bitcoin.exe on D: then D: start clicking and becomes frozen, when I shut down bitcoin.exe, everything goes back to normal
start bitcoin.exe on E: then  E: start clicking and becomes frozen, when I shut down bitcoin.exe, everything goes back to normal
start bitcoin.exe on X: then  X: start clicking and becomes frozen, when I shut down bitcoin.exe, everything goes back to normal

if it is not bitcoin.exe-related, that means all 3 harddrives are about to die and that is not very likely.
To be honest, I am not even sure, what exactly is making that click noise...

Have the developers not face that problem before?

Check the Smart Status of your Drives. I would bet its not Bitcoin related.
The rest has been said before...

Are you sure these are three different *physical* hard drives? (And not just three partitions on one hard drive.)

yes, D: and E: are 2 Partitions  on the same drive
X: is a different hard drive.

I am looking up a SMART checker now to have the disks checked.

I just SMART checke my harddrives and both drives passed and had no errors.

This time when I start bitcoin.exe it runs for about 30 sec with no problem than starts clicking again. After waiting for a while, I get a error msg:

EXEPTION: 11DbExeption
Db::put:Bad address

As said, I am not sure what is making the click noise, mabye it's not even the harddrives.

Could it be a conflict with some hardware drivers or so? Any idea?
