When I viewed protected program files in that drive, I saw a lot of files which I did not dare to modify or anything.
What should I do? What will happen if D: becomes full?
In addition to my prior post, how about checking this out;
Since it is a fact that the D drive, in this case, shouldn't be written to; First I'd disable SYSTEM RESTORE to it. Go to CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEM, SYSTEM PROTECTION on left side, select D: on the bottom pane and CONFIGURE to turn it off.
Then I'd look to see what files had the DATE changed to be today/yesterday and figure out the file(s) being written. With that info, you should be able to determine the cause. It might have been nothing more than a restore point being created on boot or after installing a program?
The advice in my first post can be beneficial as well...
