2TB Seagate Barracuda Hard Drive Noise - Page 2

I believe you may have my mouse clicking mistaken for the actual HDD crackling noise. The real sound of interest occurs roughly 25 seconds into the video.
However I have double checked to make sure my HDD is completely flat, and it is.
SeaTools also did not yield any bad results.

*facepalm* Sorry I skimmed over it, and as weird as it did sound I did thought that the mouse clicking sound was actually the HDD. Anyways personally I'd suggest you check weekly or more often for two or three weeks to see if there are any problems. If none occur, you're good to go. Might give an additional test every few months just in case. wink.gif

Just an update, it appears the frequency of this sound is occurring at much lower rates.
It may have been about 4 hours since I last heard it.

Is it possible that an HDD needs time and usage to "settle" in?

Hello,
I found this post in a search because I bought the same exact hard drive and I have the EXACT same problem. Same exact noise, every 5-30 minutes or so. Has it gotten worse for you, or is it just something that you live with?

Have you tried updating the drive's firmware? I saw reports that it corrected some odd noises that the drives make.

Hi, did you ever resolve this issue?

I have the same drive with the same issue, i sent the info to seagate.

they advised the following

Thank you for contacting Seagate Technical Support.

I am sorry to hear about the trouble with your drive. No drive is suppose to make any kind of noise except the moving of the heads.

I would suggest to check the download finder if a possible firmware update is available: https://apps1.seagate.com/downloads/request.html

If your drive needs a firmware update, then the link will be provided. If your drive does not need any updates, then I would suggest to either return the drive to your original place of purchase or

exchange it with us at: http://www.seagate.com/support/warranty-and-returns/#3.

any advice?

You know, I totally forgot about that problem. I did download the firmware, and I can't say that I remember hearing any more noises.. So I guess it did fix it!

Did it solve the problem instantly after downloading the firmware?

I'm having pretty annoying clicking sounds after I open any file on the drive.
