Windows 7: Hard drive rattling

21 Aug 2013   #11

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit/Windows 8 64-bit/Win7 Pro64-bit

Is hdtune safe? Does hdtune modify anything important on a pc? And does it download other stuff with it?

I know it's been 4 months but i think thats just seagate drives being theirself and noisy. I think i overreacted in the beginning. I was just worried because i never heard this from other people's drives. I guess Seagate HDDs are just noisy. But i forgot to say that it only happens durning read/write.

Hard drive won't stop rattling
Ever since installing Win 7. Often for 5 to 10 minutes. Thought it was Avast (from task manager processes), uninstalled Avast, still the thing won't stop except very ocassionally when I'm doing specific tasks. Is this normal (mem paging, etc)? I'm ready to go back to XP.
