Hello, I just recently purchased a WD Black 2TB drive and whenever I am in Windows8, there is a sound like it’s trying to access the drive but can’t. It sounds like two clunks, this persists for 10sec or so, then stops for 2-3 seconds and repeats.
Doesn’t do it in bios
Doesn’t do it with just the drive powered (no SATA cable)
I have tried different SATA cables and SATA ports and the noise comes back whenever idle in windows. Is there something in my windows settings that is trying to access the drive? The drive is used for storage and extra games that I do not want to run off my SSD.
