Wink Hard drive question.

I have a box that is used for nothing more than storage and the occasional Waste or FTP server. It is running Win2K Pro. It has all of the latest AVG7 virus definitions on it, and is running Spy Bot Search and Destroy. It is also running Kerio Personal Firewall, and sits behind a hardware firewall on my router. It is tied into my personal LAN at home.

For some reason one of the HDDs is hitting constantly. You can hear it chatter all the time, and the HDD LED will flash indicating hard drive access. This occurs even with NOTHING other than the OS running. If I check the Task Manager, CPU Performance is running at zero percent, memory level is normal and System Idle Process is at 99%. Nothing listed in the Applications screen.

What in the heck could be causing this hard drive to hit constantly? It started about a week ago, and it's getting annoying.
