Generally not a good sign with hdd start making weird noises. You could run the diagnostic/repair software from Samsung but if it's a mechanical problem, it may not show anything. I'd replace it unless this is a know issue with that particular drive
does anyone know if this is an issue or feature of the drive by now?
i recently purchased a spinpoint f3 1 tb hdd and i notice every 20 minutes or so it will make a "clunk" noise, followed by a revving up sound, then it will go idle and start again.. is this normal? or should i rma it ?
