Hi!

Just recently i bought this HDD, and now im starting to hear some grinding noises but they are not that much loud, when idle i can hear it also from time to time, but when i open up something or even some program that is on SDD not HDD or some game it grinds, is it kinda normal or my new hdd will die? Run all tests no single error came out. Help :)

Do you have the 1TB partitioned fully? If it is, then it is really strange that your disk is making those grinding noises. I have seen this happen before with unallocated space hard drives and failing R&W head. Would you be able to upload the sample of the grinding noise? I would definitely back up your drive if I was you.
