Attn Cluberti: unexplained drive activity, Proc Mon, Boot Trace logs
Yesterday, I added to another memberís thread about unexplained drive writing. At your request, I uploaded a Process Monitor log file.
I donít know if you got a chance to look at it. That entire thread has been removed for some reason, so I am starting this new thread. Attached is the Process Monitor file.
I have drive activity exactly 60 times per minute on a C drive (Intel SSD).
This log file was created with all non-Microsoft services turned off. Indexing is off. MSE anti-virus is the only item listed in the startup tab of msconfig.
Resource Monitorís disk tab shows mostly System and svchost.exe processes. Most of the file writing I see is to logs of one type or another.
Perhaps this is all normal and canít be reduced to less than once per second??
One odd thing I notice in the log: I ran Process Monitor for 60 secondsó4:02 PM to 4:03 PM. My drive activity light blinked throughout. Yet, the log has no entries after 4:02:30 and only one entry after 4:02:07.
I have also followed your tutorial about creating a trace and have successfully created a boot trace log ETL file. The zipped file is about 70 MB. Iíve never used cloud storage, but I guess I could upload it to Mediafire if you want to look at it. I could also create shutdown or reboot traces if necessary.
