It clicks because it looses it's positioning with the spinning disks. It is fried, stop trying to fix what is a dead disk, as you will loose data again if you put any on it.

Very good reason to make a back up of your data

i never had a drive fail sudden death with no warning. i had defrag and disk check on all drives every 2 weeks. and none of the drives show any serious problems ever this one just died.

Good... then you can get your data from where it originally is and create another new back up with a new drive

I did temporarily.

its a backup drive aka. I don't make 10 copies of same file on each drive.
some of the files were deleted from the phones to make space...

none of this nitpicking is answering a question.

can I do anything with it since it showed back up in my computer?

You can try booting off of a Linux LiveCD and accessing it, since it's generally more forgiving about accessing data on a dying HDD than Windows is.

There's also the freezer trick.

Outside of that...not much to be done besides professional recovery services.
