My external hard drive continues to move heads after the safe removal in Windows OS. The drive disappears from file system (My Computer), the action light on the drive stops blinking but I feel the head moving when the drive is in my arm. The HDD appears to work by itself for about a minute or a few and then stops moving heads (the disk is still spinning). No malfunction was detected, no viruses so far (Avira antivirus is installed). And it is not the OS cache that is written because I eject the drive not just after coping something.
I suppose that the drive can do some maintenance without the operating system but is true? I don't want to disconnect the drive when the heads are moving so I need to wait for some time (but I don't want).
P.S. Seagate Expansion Portable Drive 2.5" 4 TB (STEA4000400), Windows 7 64. Thank you!
