If you have ever wondered why your hard drive makes so much noise when idle, this is due to your files being indexed in order to help your CPU find these files easier. However, even the most insignificant files are indexed. This service puts a huge strain on your hard drive which ironically makes things easier for Windows. Because of this conundrum, most techs have deemed this Indexing Service insignificant and the cause of slow computer hard drive access. You can turn off service with the following steps:
  • Double-click My Computer, and right click on the hard drive icon.
  • Select properties.
  • Uncheck 'Allow Indexing service to index this disk for fast file searching'.
