This is maybe a silly question but I’m not a “tech type” and my new hard drive is making occasional noises that make me nervous.
I just replaced the OEM 1 TB primary drive in our HP computer with a new WD VelociRaptor one, on the advice of a tech forum I always use. Install went well (the hardware part; the software part, not so much, but it got there eventually).
I don’t recall the PC making noises before and it does now, occasionally, a sort of grinding/whirring noise. That’s not quite right but how to describe a noise? It doesn’t go on and on, but sort of off and on.
Is this normal? It seems to work fine and the analytic program I have (Hard Disk Sentinel) says the drive is “Perfect”.
Hope someone more technically aware than I can help. I’m happy to provide more info if needed.
Thanks for any suggestions,
