    ....\System 32\config\SOFTWARE.LOG1 continuously access my hard drive every
    few seconds. What should I do to fix?

    Why don't you find out which app is doing that?

    I have the same problem, but more files are involved.

    C:\$LogFile (NTFS Volume Log)
    C:\$Mft (NTFS Master File Table)

    This is after a night of zero activity. The HD access is each and every 5
    seconds. It's a laptop, I don't want the hard drive active all night! You
    know, battery life issues and such.

    Can't this be cached in RAM somehow?
