Hello everyone, I just got my first PC. It has 512 GB SSD and 3TB HDD. When I read/write data in the HDD then there is a clicking sound. The sound is more when I am writing data in the HDD. Is this normal or I should return this PC?

See attached a video with sound for your reference.


Thank you, Blade

That doesnt sound good, that is a sound of when the hdd head hits the plates inside (they are never supposed to be touching) get all the data off the drive as soon as posible, then you can check the hdd with tools that the brand of the hdd gives on their website.

Edit: if its new new hdd, return it.
