First time posting here. My G Drive USB started making incredibly scary noises while I was rendering a project in premiere pro. I shut it off and went to Best Buy and got a temporary back up, and filed for an RMA. However, now that the data was backed up, I kept working on it. The noises persisted, but to my surprise the G Drive USB worked fine. Although the speeds are now reading and writing around 160mbs and I remember it being around 215mbs.
I took a video of the way the G Drive sounds when being powered on. It was not connected to the computer, only to the power. Is this normal? or is it a warning for a failure coming soon? any advice would be appreciated!
