So I just bought a new HDD that is ST2000DM008-2FR102 (2tb), when I was moving my file to the new drive it was good for about 10 min but after that I hear noise and the progress came to a stop, I check crystaldiskinfo but the program stop working so I waited for 6 min still the same, I check the task manager and disk activity is at 100% while read and write activity is 0%. Tried to shutdown the pc but the pc still not shutting down in 8 min and I restart it with a button in my case, after that the pc stuck on the logo with the loading img not moving and while stuck sometime I hear the noise, so I decided to restart it again this time it work and i boot in to windows normaly, but when i check in disk management my new drive is not recognize by it. So i shutdown the pc again and start to unlock my case and put the sata cable to a diffrent one in the motherboard, and for now it work but sometime when i try to copy something to the new drive I sometime hear the HDD noise and after that the progress is stopped for 1 min to 2 min and then continue after that when idle is fine.


Soo is it fine to use the HDD or should i try to get a replacement or im i just paranoid

that sound is head crash - drive is dead
this usualy happens when drive receives shock when head is not parked
soo should i get a replacement or is it fine to keep using the hdd?

Edited : Right now the new HDD is working fine, and whatever that noise is I hope it does not make a permanent damage to the new HDD. and maybe i bang the new HDD a little to hard when trying to mount it to the case because the place is a little cramped in there

Yea i know that for a while now, thats why i buy the new hdd and try to move my file there, but looks like there is a problem with the new hdd
Your new HDD - Seagate ST2000DM008 is SMR drive. It has terrible write performance consistency.
It is not usable for installing windows on it. You can use it for backups/archives/user media storage (assuming it is working properly and is not damaged).

For windows drive you should get SSD instead. Windows 10/11 runs really bad on mechanical drives.

Good thing my new HDD is for storing my game, video, music, etc. As for the SSD is right now i dont have the money to buy it at the moment. And for my main concern is the HDD is making noise when i copying something to it, at least that what happend the first when i try to copy something in it. Right now it seems fine after plugging the SATA cable to the diffrent one in the motherboard and i hope thats the last time i heard my new HDD making that noise when im doing some work with it, Looks like im just paranoid. Anyways im going to update this post if anything happend to the new drive.
