I recently bought a new WD 6 terabyte My Book external hard drive. I’ve been testing it out and it works fine, however every time I unplug the USB or power cable the hard drive makes a brief (1 second) deceleration/whining noise that none of my other externals HD have made. My question: is this noise normal or is it an indication that something is wrong?
Below is a video of what I’m describing, the noise happens at the 7 second mark (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KdomUJFu90)
Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
