Recently, my secondary storage drive has been making a strange buzz sound. For instance, I have MS Office on the secondary drive, I'll save a document, the program freezes a second a light buzz sound occurs then program works again. How ever it doesn't always do it. Any advice would be great!

Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums!

Any kind of unusual noises from a hard drive is never good! Download and run "HDTune" as well as "CrystaldiskInfo" and check the status of the disk in question.

It's best to be prepared to replace the disk if it is bad. And make sure you backup your computer regularly to an external disk.
