XP choosing a drive

  jack 14:48 30 Oct 05

When I re constructed this machine and installed XP Pro it selected for itsef the drive it was going to use for back up - in this case a small 2gig ext firewire HDD was located 'D'
Fine no problem there I am hope-
So I have this drive with nothing on except a Windows folder.
I dont write to it much either because it has its big 200 gig brother at 'L' for backups.
However from time to time there is in 'D' much disk activity for a short period a minute or less.
Then it goes quiet for days and then may have another splurge.
So I am assuming this is XP writing its self correction or backing with any intervention on my part.
Could this be so?
