Ever since I made my Seagate ST380011A my boot drive (which was a bad idea in itself, but unavoidable) it just wants to write to itself at random intervals. Even when I'm not running any intensive tasks or when I have the VM for it set to zero. and it's only 10% fragmented with 50% free space.
But really, it wouldn't be so bad if it weren't so loud. It sounds like an elf with bubble wrap in there, much louder than my other drives. So what would be best for silencing it? Tightening some screws? Oiling some joints (which worked with my noisy SOB vid card fan)? Insulating the case?
