Default Drivelight flickering all the time

If you all ask me, I would say that it is some secret deal between Microsoft
and World Governments, including our own, as a very secret backdoor spyware
developed and reporting to the National Security Administration (NSA). A
hidden virus controled by the government and Microsoft to spy on it's own
citizens under a passage of law comonly refered to the Patriot Act. An act
that gave the United States Government a conclusive authority to violate any
and all of a person rights at anytime for the purpose of national security.
I mean, I may be a lil paraniod and all... But you have to think about it.
It's possible.

Sorry to be repetitious but the observed behavior resembles a
drive-indexing run so closely that I feel compelled to ask.

You say, "No indexers of any kind nor cataloging running" . Does this
include the Widows indexing service as controlled under Drive Properties
General tab "Index this drive for faster searching."?

Run a disk check on the drive and check the option to fix errors.

For diagnostic purposes:

Turn off indexing on the drive.

If you have any program installed that catalogues pictures, videos, et
al, check for an option to disable it for that drive. Alternately, shut
it off or temporarily remove it.

PS
Pesky observation: I get the point but you picked a flicker/flash
frequency such that the light would be perceived by most people as being
steadily on.

Older "sound" film used to be recorded and projected at 24 frames per
sec, silent film at 16 frames per second. Some people were annoyed by
the "flicker". Most did not notice it.

Hi all,

Vista Home Premium, 4GB, C:\drive internal, I:\drive USB

The accesslight on my 320GB D: drive containing ONLY Userdata music,
pictures, documents started
recently to permanently flicker in a steady rhythm, say 20Hz. The drive
sits in a dockingstation, on
top of the MEDION computercase and connects through USB 2.0

C: Drive 320GB has all programs and programdata on it, so they are
completely separated.

When accessed it will either light up stronger or gets dimmer,
depending on the amount of data read, then settles to regular
flickering.
It used to be completely ON, except when accessed or written to.

The computer works allright but loading pictures or other data from
D:drive is sluggish. Performance
of the drive is clearly lower, it is busy. It will also needlessly wear
out sooner.

On startup, its light is steady ON (as it used to), and starts to
flicker following userlogon and desktop visible.
During restarting the system, it will not stop to flicker.

Did the obvious scans, AVG, Spyware, defrag, empty Recycle bin, clean
Registry etc.

Light's still on and flickering, as if contstantly acessesed by
'something'.
There is no outgoing activity to the Internet as displayed by my
NetMonitor.

I have stopped, reset and restarted Searchindexer, which finished its
job. No effect.

In Vista's Reliability and Performance Tool section Disk I can see no
other permanent activity going on for
D:drive (other than valid acesses) but sometimes
D:\$MFT NTFS50-MFT Master File Table and
D:\$Logfile.

The latter 2 files I cannot see in Explorer nor in TreeSize.
How to access those for inspection?

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Ciao,
Maria
