My new MyBook 12TB makes two types of strange noises:
- Sometimes a series of quite fast clicks (for roughly 15 seconds, several clicks per second)
- Lounder noises like the typical “sound of death”
Now I would like to check for the disks status. Is there a way to check the disk status via SMART? I have both Linux and Windows available.
CrystalDiskInfo or GSmartControl.
