Sometimes but not always when I would open a program or a folder my HDD would make a whining noise as if it's speeding up. This lasts for 1-2 seconds.

It started happening only after I reinstalled windows.

I did a sfc /scannow check and also a SMART scan both finding no problems and saying that my HDD is perfectly fine,

I'm just wondering what that whining noise is and why it happens?
