My new HDD drags, or is it normal?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone,

I'm not sure if the word I'm looking for is called "dragging", it sounds like the "bearings" are rubbing.

I'm using only SSDs and NVMe in my computer.

I got myself a Seagate Constellation ES.2 3TB, SED, SATA 6Gb/s (ST33000651NS) drive and I'm not sure if it just sounds like this or if it's broken.
It sounds like "crappy fans" where the bearing is rubbing (dragging?).

 

It works, I've copied a 8GB clip on the 3TB HDD and it was writing with 145mb/s.

Compare the sounds with the sounds recorded on the following website:

 

Failing hard drive sounds - Datacent.com - Datacent

 

If there is a match, look for how to replace the HDD as soon as possible. These recorded sounds are an imminent failure warning.

A quick note here... All drives, no matter how much they cost, what kind they are, or how old they are, are subject to sudden, irrecoverable failure with no notice (heck, I've had new drives arrive DOA).

 

To ensure the safety of data, it must exist in three different places. For most people, this will be on the computer, on an onsite backup drive(s), and on an offsite backup drive(s). To be true backup drives, they must be kept disconnected from the computer and powered down except while updating the backup. Also, offsite and onsite backup drives must be swapped out a frequently as practical to ensure the offite backup drives are kept as up to date as possible.

I will not run a library of videos on a server like linus does. If the videos get lost, I have no problem with that. I would have a problem when I let my 1TB SSD write 100s of GB each day.

Linus backs up his servers.
