Hi,
I bought a WD RED Pro 16 TB HDD recently (just for data hoarding) and it has a high pitched noise while spinning (most noticeable in IDLE). It's at a really high frequency, so not everybody will hear it. Half of my friends/family members dont hear it at all. It's not even that loud, but as I'm really sensitive to higher pitched noises, I find it extremely annoying.

Anybody has/had that problem too? How's the Seagate Ironwolf series? Do they have the high pitched noise too?

It's my first helium drive, maybe it's normal for those drives to sound that way?

You will most probably get a better answer in a user forum. This place is involved in data recovery. Nobody really cares about the noise a hard drive makes unless it's broken.
