Since I can’t seem to mark my previous thread as unsolved …I’m posting this in a fresh thread.
I was told the constant drive access was related to the usb error, and would be fixed together, but from what I can see this isn’t correct. I did a full uninstall using revo uninstaller, so it was clean as it gets, installed 1.3.1 yesterday and after a few hours, its back to the old behavior of reading and writing drives at bytes a second, on the order of 700bytes-40k bytes per second Some drives like E have no valid reason for access, its just a data drive, no applications and I didn’t access it recently but expresscache deems it necessary to keep it awake over what?
I guess i’m going to have to go back to stopping the service at night again. Stopping the service stops the unecessary drive access.
