Continually running hard drive; what is my problem?
Did a search for this and came up with nothing to help. So, I have KUBUNTU 8.04 GG LTS and I have noticed for the past 4 or 5 days that the hard drive light is constantly flickering like is it running data or something. I rebooted my computer and checked my other hard drive with KUBUNTU 7.04 FF and after a minute or so after the computer finishes its basic loading the hard drive light is off. I would check my windows hard drive but I would have to wait an hour or 2 as AVG would be running its check. I did install AVGFREE for Ubuntu, Saturday and it has performed daily checks and found no problems. I had Limewire and thought that it might be the problem (I removed it) but NO. I also have Limewire on my other hard drive and it is normal. Are there any terminal commands or anything else to run and try to figure out why this hdd is always running?? I disconnected my ehternet and there was NO change. Not sure what else to try.
