I am currently using a Samsung HDD, 250GB (7200 rpm) of size. I have installed Ubuntu 20.04 on that disk with some applications. Also my system is dual boot system with Windows 10, but Windows is on separate HDD. Currently, this Samsung HDD is having slight vibration and also its making a knocking noise when downloading files.
But I think the data transferring rate of HDD is good and fast and as well as no crashed files.
What would be the problem ? Can anyone explain ??
Have you checked to ensure that it's securely mounted? HDDs make some noise, especially when searching or transferring information.
Additionally, I'd make sure everything is sufficiently cool within your PC. For the most part, the cooler it is, the better it will run and that includes the HDD.
