Brand new HDD weird noises

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I recently bought a new 6 TB HDD as I needed more storage. I wanted a 7200 RPM one so I opted for Seagate Exos 7E8 6TB. I moved my entire library on it (about 2 TB), but I heard it make really loud noises compared to my old Baraccuda. I thought they would disappear after a while but after 2 months they still occur. Is it normal for a enterprise HDD to be that much louder or should I be worried?

Yup. Tuned for performance in datacenters where noise is the least of anyone's worries.
