Hello,

Got an external hard drive WD my passport 2TB 1 month ago or so, works completely fine till now but i notice some clicks occasionally when opening a file in the hard or something it got the vibration and it feels normal but sometimes it do that clicks, the hard doesn't make any sounds though only notice it by touching, i did my research & i only found the issue when the hard making sounds so i wanted to share my story here since mine wasn't making any sounds

So should i be worried or this is normal ?

WD has software to test the drive. Can you download and run it to see if there is anything it can detect? I have one of WD 4TB for my xbox game (over 200 installed and only at 40% full) and it makes typical hard drive sounds, but not clicking

i made the hard test with WD software and it passed, but that clicking feeling still present, i think since the hard passed and working fine i shouldn't be worried or whaa
