My hard drive is making a loud grumbling/rumbling sound

I just got this hardrive today, and I noticed when i am installing games, it makes a loud rumbling/grumbling kind of sound. Sometimes it is really intense and then other times it almost goes away.


It is this 2tb Seagate one from newegg: https://www.newegg.com/seagate-barracuda-st2000dm008-2tb/p/N82E16822184773

Well its only games so its not really a problem if i lose any data. 

What should I use to check the drive?

When I formatted it earlier today I did the full format which I thought was supposed to make sure the drive was fine.

I can kind of feel the drive vibrating when I touch the outside of the case. Could the drive be not secure and is shaking around when it spins up fast or something?

CrystalDiskInfo is a simple way to read your SMART report.


It can also be done dia PowerShell/Command prompt with:

There were no screws. It just kind of stuck to the tray like it was magnetic or something. I have a feeling I was maybe supposed to screw it in even though I dont have the screws for it lol.


I tried that first command and it said
