Hard Drive runs all the time

Post by linkcooper on Wed Oct 05, 2011 12:20 am

I hear it spinning up and down constantly, even when logged off.

I have scanned the system with both Kasparsky and Malwarebytes. I noticed it after using Registry Mechanic, but not sure that's related at all.

I don't KNOW of anything that is search indexing, but that's a possiblity. (How do I tell?)

Thanks for any help...

OK, went in and reset all drives, all folders to NOT index. Rebooted and still no change.

maybe you should run some tests, you may want to try this one: http://www.hdtune.com/download.html or check your HDD's health with this one:
http://hddlife.com/eng/downloads.html you can try the trial version if you don't want to buy the program or look for the free version, which is listed beneath teh SSD section.

good luck. Big Grin
