    I had some drives stick, and read somewhere that rapidly rotating the drive (not in the case) back and forth a few times could loosen them up. I vaguely remember trying it with mixed results. The FH 5.25" drives took it better than the 3.5" drives.

    Sometimes running a drive in an orientation other than what it has been mounted in all its life (flip it upside down) for at least a day or so can redistribute oils a bit and possibly quiet it down.
