A new Western Digital WD2004FBYZ HDD makes a strange noise after shut down.
Pls check the video

The drive works perfectly in Windows and shows no SMART warnings.
I have already checked the drive with Quick Test in WinDlg.
Any ideas what could be the source of this noise? I have never heard a HDD making a noise like this.

I would suggest replacing the drive, this is not a common sound for an internal hard drive although the test pass that sound is not good. please refer to the following link for help with the replacement:

I hoped maybe this noise could be normal because there are no other signs of failing, perhaps due drive feature I don’t know.
But indeed I also considered that this is no normal noise and I don’t want to risk a data loss in the future.
I will follow your advice and get a RMA.
Thank you for your help.
