I have a Windows 7 64 bit machine freshly installed. When I open the latest version of google chrome, the hard drive is constantly being accessed. I know because it makes a loud annoying noise. The hard drive is a samsung 2Tb HDD. It's fairly new and I got it for cheap so I think the drive itself is very noisy. The noise only happens when chrome is open though.
goes away the instant i close chrome. So i've switched the firefox for now, but I'm keen to find out why.
the 2tb hard drive is mounted as my h:\ and I changed chrome's downloads and my documents to sit straight on that drive, because my c:\ is a 60gb SSd, too small to fit everything.
Anyone ever experienced anything like this ?
Here's some details to help get a clear picture
