Not normal. Better make sure its from your hard disk, if still new better RMA it. grinding noise means the disc is getting scratches, later will be dead faster.. Just remember to make sure its your HDD problem before RMA. lol

Grinding noises in a HDD is a no-no.

Best to RMA.

If it is from your HDD, move/copy all your data out from it while you can. Do not waste any more time. It is in the process of dying.

1. Backup all important data to another storage
2. Then download & run CrystalDiskInfo to check the health status of your HDD

Paste screenshot CrystalDiskInfo so we can help you identify if there's something wrong with your HDD

hdd with loud grinding sound is head crash, the actuator is grinding the disk, scratching the magnetic coating off the disk surface,
and your hdd will not working.
