That is bizarre. In those threads did the others admit that the problem went away when a SSD was installed in place of the disk-based HD or just that it wasn't noticeable?
Assuming the activity were caused by an OS process and not by virtue of the device type I would be even more eager to search for the cause if I had an SSD installed. Aren't SSD lifespans limited by a finite number of read/write cycles or is that just rumor?
