Been on windows 10 for a few months now, it runs quite stable and have no real problems with it. However there is a constant sound of a disk head moving, for the life of me I cant figure out what is causing my drives to access. ideas?

It could be indexing services. (You know that thing that is supposed to make your searches faster) It does lot of reading and writing in the background. You can turn it off completely, but any local file searches will be slow. Also, it is sometimes set to index the ENTIRE drive... which could cause this.

Also, check your resource monitor (Task Manager > Performance > Resource monitor ) to see what is accessing the drive. There might be something else running that you weren't aware of.

It definitely could be a HDD issue. Could just be wear and tear making the drive louder than normal. If there is an actual issue it will show up in diagnostics.

I am hoping the Der being the experienced long time HHer he is has already run some diagnostics though cool

That sounded a little gibberish toward the end Acarzt xD Sorry, yeah, contacting the HDD manufacturer may be the quickest fix and easiest solution to your problem although this is not a guarantee they can help.
