WD click sound when accessing from idle Tags: Western Digital Green Storage Hard Drives Last response: May 29, 2013 5:29 AM in Storage Share st5 May 28, 2013 3:02:00 AM Hi I bought a new HDD (wd20ezrx, aka WD Green, 1TB platters). It is running fine except it makes a quiet click sound whenever I access the drive from idle. Is this fine? Other than that it´s completely quiet and running fast, no smart errors. I used to have an older seagate and it didn´t make this sound. More about : click sound accessing idle Hawkeye22 a c 379 G Storage May 29, 2013 5:29:43 AM It's most likely the heads unparking. Green drives go idle more often than standard drives. It shouldn't be a problem. Also, WD drives tend to be louder than seagate drives IMO. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
