Default crazy random HD acess

so lately i ve noticed that my pc just starts some major data acess for a minute or so and then stops.
i dont know if it does it during the day but i only nottice it at night.
and i belive its to be my system drive western digital raptor 36gb 10k rpm.
it is very loud when acessing the drive im not sure if its normal of i got a deffective one.
i have 3 other drives which are 7200 rpm and they are not as loud. or have the uncontrollable data acess syndrome...

is there such a thing as clearing a page file after certain amount of time?
why else would it be acessing the hard drive fro such a long time?

What OS are you running? It could be indexing if it is Vista or Win7.

Do you have a copy of Nero Burning Rom?
If so, make sure you turn off Nero Scout. I find that Nero Scout is more trouble than it's worth.
