Weird Noise From Back Up Photo Drive

When I plug in my backup photo drive to clone with my main photo drive it makes a weird buzzing sound and won’t show up on my computer. Does anyone know what this means or how I might be able to fix it? Thanks for your help.


Hi Bethany,
I’m sorry to say that that is not a good sign! Any buzzing from a mechanical hard drive is something to be concerned about, for sure. If it’s your back-up, then I recommend just buying a new back-up that is identical in size and do a fresh clone!
