View Full Version : Short click-sound in HDD when opening a file?

So, I am not sure if this is supposed to be this way but I wanna ask anyway:

Whenever I open a program on my HDD, it makes a short, not too loud "click"-noise, It sounds similar to if you press down a button on the keyboard, but more low-pitched.

Is that a norml behaviour? Or should I get a new HDD?

I have that too but I read in many forums that this is no big deal or an issue for that matter. The HDD is simply just rotating inside the device which is making that noise. There is a way to stop it however. You can download this program called NHC and set the HDD performance to high and it should stop or so I've read that it does. I haven't tried it yet because its not that bad. You'll get over it.
