A Question About Disk Activity

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I recently bought as SSD. When I open the Task Manager and look at the disk graphic in the performance tab, I can see that my main disk (the aforementioned SSD) reads and writes every couple seconds even when I'm not running any programs. Is this normal? I know that Windows runs many of its own services in the background so I'm assuming this has something to do with that but I wanted to be sure. Thanks.

Yes, there's always background activity at the OS level or even with some apps that look closed but have remnants still running.
