WD click sound when accessing from idle


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.

  1. 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.
