Hi Ty,

Thanks for your post. The cyclical clicking sounds indicate a defective hard drive in your G-DRIVE 1TB. The DiskWarrior message is indicating the same, if you let it run, it MAY allow you to access the data through the Preview mode, and if it does, I recommend you backup your data immediately. If you are still in warranty, you can return the drive for replacement. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,
