Your screenshot doesn't show the useful information. Try this:

Start> Run then type:

perfmon.exe /res

Activity Indicator: Activity Indicator | SourceForge.net

You can use it to log file changes on any or all drives.

Hello, Was wondering if some one knows what all this disk activity is usually at the end of the day when the system is idle. It's not disk defrag, defender, or any other type of scan. It sounds like when a disk defrag is running only quieter. It's constant and can run for over an hour, yet...
