beep or clicks on a wd drive is a sign the drive on it last legs. if it under warranty i would rma the drive.
Its a seagate drive, used it for like 5 years and all of a sudden, after installing a new ssd, it just makes this noise every few minutes?

I think it also turns itself off every so often, bc I here it spinning up as if I've just booted my pc
