I have a fairly new HPE 150t desktop, and recently purchased a Seagate 500 GB FreeAgent Go for backup purposes.
There is a low, intermittent humming sound (on for a second, then off for a second) coming from the PC when the portable drive is connected. It is clearly coming from the PC and not the Seagate drive. It stops when the drive is removed. Seagate telephone support said they had not come across it before but thought it might have to do with the power needed by the PC to run the drive. Is this something I even need to be concerned about? If there is an issue with my PC I would like to get it taken care of while still under warranty. Thanks.
