I have a 1TB WD external HDD purchased about a year and a half ago which Ive never had problems with until now.
For the last week or so, Ive been having a really annoying problem where the HDD will *constantly* make read/write noises, as if it’s working on something, and will only stop when I access it. Eventually the noise will always start up unless I get it to perform an action.
You can see that this gets pretty annoying when Im working in my office and suddenly a “krrtz/tsch krrtz/tsch krrtz/tsch krrtz/tsch” noise starts up.
Any way of fixing this?
