Hi, yesterday my pc wasn't fully connected to my electrical outlet all the way. As a result, my pc abruptly shut down twice. This resulted in a loud, grinding noise whenever the hard drive reads or writes. The drive passes the S.M.A.R.T. test. Should I just get it replaced by warranty? also, do WD send refurbished or new ones back? Thanks.

I never really noticed the noises before the power cut though, it seems this new noise has come due to it.

from 'Short Generic' test
Its louder in real life and the noise is new so i'm quite concerned - it seems that the power cut has damaged it, but I don't know if this noise is worrying or just normal.
