I've set up my Ubuntu 11.10 on a SSD with an encrypted LVM. I've attached another ext4 HDD, unencrypted, it's automounted on
/media/data and created Videos, Music, Downloads and Backups folders on it, removed the existing ones from my home folder and symlinked the new ones.
My PC is constantly rattling from hard drive usage although I am not accessing any of those folders. Like, create a new tab in Chromium, 2 seconds of HD rattle.
ll /etc (which is on the SSD), 1 second of HD rattle. Open new terminal window, 2 seconds of HD rattle and then it's open.
Automatic backup is on, but set to run weekly. What is going on here? Did I mess something up?
