Hello,
I bought a new HDD (Western Digital 4TB Blue 5400 RPM) about a week ago. Every time I start my PC in the morning, it makes weird noise for about a minute and half. I checked for bad sectors but there was none at all. I also checked its speed it goes about 180MBps for both reading and writing, so I don't know if this noise is a normal thing or I should worry about it. By the way, the noise that comes from the PC case started only after I plugged in the HDD, so it's most probably from the HDD and not anything else. I attached a video showing the noise and where it comes from exactly.
