Welcome to the Community.

That noise is unusual indeed. Where is your hard drive connected? And did you run a diagnostic test?

Thanks for your reply!

Tue disk is connected in a QNAP TS-232 nas and the self test and SMART apps dont see anything wrong in the disk

Maybe you should try contacting WD’s Technical Support about this. You can do so either by phone or email.

Did you get any further with this? I have the same, with 2 brandnew 6 TB WD-Red’s.
