To those who would prefer a description:
It starts fast and slows down. I opened the file with Audacity and
determined the intervals to be 0.1, 0.3, 0.6, 10, 15 seconds, then
It sounds like some kind of protocol negotiation algorithm that
requires a disk sync when the polling time doubles.
Here's a link for your listening pleasure:
I'm hoping it's some cron job, or DropBox, Trinity Desktop, wifi,
smart disk status monitoring, nVidia, Intel, ... not a virus trying
to phone home.
I'm really hoping that someone reading this will go "oh that thing"
and know what it is instantly.
Curiously it doesn't happen every day.
I had suspended to ram and restored => clicking.
Fresh boot today => no clicking.
Also the intervals are 0.1, 0.3, 0.6, 1.0, 1.5 seconds.
And, yep, I've ordered another hard drive.

Please remember not to top-post:
I got a new hard disk.
I still get the same clicking, but now it also sometimes happens before
I type in the passphrase to unlock the luks encrypted lvm partition the
OS sits on.
Maybe it's the hard disk controller.
I also took out the Broadcom wifi/bluetooth pci express card as it was
acting up too.
Maybe it's time to retire this Samsung NP-RF711-S07UK.
Bought in 2012, that's four years more than the warranty.
Still using the Samsung, no clicks at the moment.
