Hi guys, I have a question and I was hoping someone with the same drive could help me I have a my book essential 3.0 that I just purchased and I noticed that during the first 10% of the smartware quick drive test it makes a loud humming noise. There aren’t any other noticeable noises during writing or anything else. I know that usually a HDD making loud noises is a bad sign, could someone please tell me if I should take this back for a replacement or if this is normal? Thanks in advance guys
