Hi, thanks for info, I just added a sound file. The thing is that its fine until i move lots of data. I ve got nothing important on the drive, just games. And the drive is brand new, never used, never opened
Noises are not necessarily bad.
It has moving parts...they make noise.

If it makes new noises over time, that can be bad.

There are no clicks. Normal HDD operation sound.

Did you expect it to be silent as SSD?
I'm afraid that's not possible for a mechanical drive. They all make some level of sound.
Well my previous WD 1TB and Seagate Barracuda 2TB were silent, soo my expectation was different.
Although thanks for information!
