Well; i hate to be the bearer of bad news; but I hope you have some sort of backup because if you hear clicking like that there is a chance that drive may be dead. As far as recovering the documents; dont think you will be able to do that unless you have a backup somewhere

Hi abeching, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Try to connect the hard drive with a different cable and check if it is readable in BIOS or not.

If not, I will suggest you to go to a professional place to get the data recovered. As, most of the data recovery software do not perform as mentioned.
