I am using Samsung hard 500GB hard drive now. But recently it starts clicking. What does the click sound mean? Even sometimes I cannot connect it without disconnecting it.

When it start clicking, my pc stutters. My hard drive is almost filling up with many important data. If I had to format it then I will fall in a great problem. I really do not want to do it. What can I do now?

Normally a clicking sound coming from your hard drive is a bad omen. The horrific events of the material are a pioneer, so my advice is immediate "backup your hard disk!" As soon as possible.
