Is it regular hard drive chatter or does it sound unusual like something is broken? Its probably just updatedb running in the background.

Try not to double post, Especially in the same forum section.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
