[lug] Whiney drives.

I hope this isn't too stupid of a question but...

Is it common or even possible for a severely frag'd drive (HD) to make
hideous whining noises? Would it be the heads trying to keep up, if so?

I was sure the drive was gonna die, sounded almost like it was speeding up
and slowing down. But I defrag'd (sorry it's a Windoze machine) and now
it's not making any noticable sounds.
