    I recently purchased a 6tb HGST Deskstar NAS drive after 2 WD drives failed. I noticed that the HGST keeps ticking (normal sounding as if its accessing data or parking the heads) about every 5 seconds during idle. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Thanks

    HGST did something like this just before it failed. My two WD Red 6TB drives have been flawless, but its only been 4 months..
