My hard drive sounds identical to this:
The sound starts very loud, and every 5 seconds it clicks, also on sudden occasions, even if you are not reading or writing, you start to hear it very fast.
Anyone who has this model or the previous one who can confirm if these sounds are normal?
This would be the third time that I send it to guarantee and it sounds the same as the previous two.
The hard drive comes from a batch made in Thailand dated March 2020. Please help me I would appreciate it infinitely if you specify that the sounds are normal.
The hard disk is operating at 59 C and according to the manual the temperature is normal, nor do I have any programs that are causing the problem of constantly analyzing the disk.
The disk was tested with a dock, an external casing and on a desktop computer and all emit the same noises, electricity problem is also ruled out.
I passed WD Lifeguard’s extended and fast test.
Programs like crystaldiskinfo and victoria mark it in good condition.
The hard drive is new.
