for the last 10 minutes or so my hard disk light is constantly on, but i am not really doing anything here that would require heavy disk access. After a bit of digging i could only find the "System" process doing a lot of reads and writes to "c:\System Volume Information\". From what i have just read, this is for system restore points and the indexing service, which i both turned off. Can anyone enlighten me what this does, or how to find out what windows feature exactly is doing this, and how i can windows stop from doing it? (edit: It stopped ... for now.)
a little background info: This is a thinkpad T410 with 4GB ram and Win7 Pro (64Bit). I already disabled all the services i never need (printing, indexing, media center sharing, frikking "Windows is looking for a solution" thingy and whathaveyou). Windows and all the software i use is up to date with the latest patches. Im also quite sure it's not some virus or malware since i don't download any torrents or pirated software, and i know a dodgy site when i see one.
