    Hi, my laptop has recently crashed. I've removed the internal hard drive and tried to connect it to my other pc to copy files over but there is a clicking noise (which I've now seen is called the click of death...). Is there any way I can get the data off it? Even if it gets 20min of life left.

    Sorry but you are learning the hard way that you should always have a backup, drives will die and it's just a matter of time.

    Once it starts clicking and if the system doesn't detect it, then the only thing you can do is send it in to get the data recovered and it won't be cheap.
