I just bought the drive a few months ago, and have been using it to back up my laptop. Yesterday I was transferring files over and it made a scraping/scratching noise (for about a second) that it never had before. Otherwise the drive was quiet and worked normally. What could be the cause for that noise?
(I have bought a new drive and plan to copy all the files over the weekend, but it will take several hours and I’m really hoping the noise doesn’t indicate the drive will die immediately)
