My system has run great since installing Vista..
In the past couple of days, though, my hard drive has started peaking and freezing the system until it is finished doing whatever it is doing.. I can even hear it 'scratching', something I've never heard from it before..
I thought maybe it was web related, but it does it even if I'm not running IE.. It usually takes about 2.5 mins to complete, and happens about twice an hour.. Very annoying as I'm trying to finish a large project and I'm worried my hard drive is crashing.
I've scanned for viruses and malware and found nothing.
Should I back up the important stuff and run chkdsk?
I check the task manager processes and don't see anything standing out as abnormal.. I have no idea why it is doing this..
