Since you don't seem to be getting any answers here, you could try to ask Seagate about the issue and if anything can be done about it.
RAID have never ever been a replacement for backups. Without backups on a different system (preferably placed at another site), you will eventually lose data!

A non-RAID configuration (including RAID 0, which isn't really RAID) with a backup on a separate media protects your data far better than any RAID-volume without backup.

All data storage consists of both the primary storage and the backups. It's your money and your data, spend the storage budget wisely or pay with your data!

Just plugged it in an external USD hdd device and same noise ! So it's not related to QNAP

Will contact Seagate Monday
