Did that solve the problem? It is not uncommon for a thin sheet metal backing plate, (dust shield in this case), to become bent and rub on the rotor. Also, a bead of rust will form on both sides of the outer edge of the rotor. Typically that gets ground off right away before you ever hear it, but when the vehicle sits unused over a weekend, you may hear the noise the next time you drive it.
We bend back dust shields every once in a while, but we do not waste time trying to figure out what caused it to rub. Sometimes part of it rusts away too, then they sag under their own weight.
