Wondering how our software development process works? Take a look!

Find me on twitter, or read my blog. Don't say I didn't warn you because I totally did.

However, I no longer work at Stack Exchange, Inc. I'll miss you all. Well, some of you, anyway. :)

I'm not sure if that's what the OP was referring to (I think he meant regular, heavy hard drive activity). But it is true -- ANY unusual sounds from a hard drive mean you should PANIC and start backing up immediately

this question is so ambiguous and vague. Can you make it more clear what it is you are asking, and what you want to accomplish?
