Default Harddrive Is making a weird clicking noise

I turned on my other computer a while ago and I heard a grinding noise. I'm pretty sure it's dead. Any second thoughts how long I have?

Test it with seatools. If you get any errors... you should backup your data immediately..

I'd backup everything -first- ~ THEN check for errors and such.
