Vista: HDD Continually Working
Jun 28, 2008, 8:55 PM
I installed Vista 32bit and I have a raptor 74gb drive as C:.
Even when I am doing nothing at all, the HDD just keeps working and working. What is it doing? When I look in resource monitor all I see taking up HDD resources are a bunch of items labelled "System".
The HDD just keeps grinding and grinding and there is nothing running at all (except Vista of course).
