    Probably something to do with the moving of your drive, that is affected only when the platters are decelerating. I would back up any necessary data now to be safe and keep an eye on the problem for now. Are you sure the sound does not happen when starting up tue computer as well?
  2. only on shutdown...i thought of that too so at startup i did listen to the drive and heard the typical yu should hear...only at shutdown it makes that noise...
