I just got a new WD Black 4TB HDD and it’s working fine it seems, however there is this noise it makes.

It’s the odd “thump” that occurs twice in the sound clip.

I hope this isn’t a cause for concern.

I meant how long before it makes the noise again?
My new 8tb WD drive puts itself to sleep and then windows wakes it up even though nothing is on the drive. Repeat over and over again but not like every minute. It takes about 5 minutes I think, haven't timed it yet.

It’s about 5 seconds between noises
