Have you tried scrolling to the right in the Disk "frame" and sort on the Total column?

You could probably also check under CPU and sort on the CPU column. The program using that much disk activity is probably also using a lot of CPU.

And try a reboot if you haven't tried that.

If Windows Media Player is set to share media files on the Lan it has a tendency to hog the HD scanning for media files to share. In Network Sharing settings you could disable it and see if the HD usage is reduced.

Do you have any software that automatically detects file changes in folders? Stuff like cloud storage where you just dump files in a local folder?

That Windows API that auto detects file changes can bring a system to its knees.

Other than that boot to Safe Mode and see if the drive settles down. If so then it's a process of elimination what runs only in normal mode.

It's a process of elimination. Unfortunately there's no quick fix. If you want to find the culprit it's either go through each process running in normal mode that does not run in safe mode. Or the fix all approach of reinstalling.

i use utorrent software but this soft not runs on STartup(i Change settings) , it only runs when i open/Run it.. Bitcon(Never Heard)?? So i think bitcon and torrent are not the cause of high Disk activity.

BSODs constantly regardless of current computer activity.
It is a computer that I built myself and it has constantly blue screened on me since it was built. Sometimes it will go a couple days in between and other times it will just be one after another after it reboots itself. I believe I correctly attached the dump files. Any help would be appreciative.

Strange Disk Activity
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...
