Hope this is the appropriate list to post on!
I have Win 2000 on this PC, and I only had a Maxtor 20gig HDD... when I got ADSL and started using KL it was apparent that this wasn't even anywhere near sufficient!
So I robbed a different PC of a Seagate 40 gig, which is now my slave (heh!. But here is the strange thing - the new drive is constantly accessed: during startup, shut-down, opening progs, etc.
I know this because the Maxtor (master) drive is super-quiet, and you could never hear it, whereas the Seagate (whilst it isn't noisy as such) does make its presence known audibly, chuntering away. But why does it chunter so much?! The drive is completely blank, by the way, with an NTFS partition. The only folder on there is 'RECYCLER'.
I thought that it might be the 'indexing service' or something like that, but surely it wouldn't need to use the drive that much?
Anyway, if anyone had any thoughts or anything, they would be much appreciated! Cheers!
