Oftentimes with traditional hard drives can make scraping sounds. Another sign is the speed of the drive. If the drive's speed has taken a steep decline it may be time to update your hard drive. 

Another reason to update your hard drive is if you need to increase your storage capacity. This could be due to having too many photos, files, and/or other data. Upgrading for this reason will increase the speed of your machine.
