Stopping SD causing damage to hard drive?

I'm backing up 1 1.5TB drive to another, I bought one brand new last week and had to return it after it started making clicking noises. the only thing I had done to that drive was run super duper. I did stop it when I needed my computer for other things, but stopped them via the stop button in SD and ejected the drives safely. I returned the drive that was making noises, but now the new drive I got is doing the same thing. I've only run SD on it and now it's making noises. Is this something I should worry about? anything that could be triggering it?

No, stopping SuperDuper! simply stops our copying. We do not interact with the drive at a low-level, and cannot cause drive damage (although we obviously use drives quite a bit, and it's more likely they'll fail while being copied to then when idle).

Many drives make 'clicking noises' normally, but the definition of 'clicking noises' can change from user to user...
