I have a 2 Terabyte external hard drive. It is a SimpleTech/Hitatchi/Fabrik product.
Here is the link to the manufacturer page:
Duo Pro Drive | SimpleTech :: by Fabrik
It has been running noisy lately. It sounds kind of like the fan is grinding, but I am really not sure what it is.
Also, when I first turn this drive on, the light flashes red for a while.
I have another drive from this same manufacturer -- the 1TB version. It runs quietly and I do not have any of these problems.
Is there a diagnostic that I can run to figure out what is wrong with my 2TB drive? Something free would be nice.
