I’ve bought today wd elements 10tb new. It makes a repeated clicking noise like a heartbeat but more strong every 5 seconds while it’s idle and working apart from regular working acceptable sound which is not disturbing. If I put may hands on it or grap it, I feel it physically as well. Is this acceptable?
I checked harddisk health with both western digital data life guard diagnostics and crystal disk info softwares. They both say it’s fine.
But this sound is annoying. And afraid of it being defective.
How are your wd elements? Is this acceptable?
