Let's try looking at these reports:

1)  Please run this report collecting tool (even though you may not be reporting BSOD's) so we can provide a complete analysis:  http://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/
When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location.
By default it'll be a .zip file located on your Desktop
Simply upload the .zip file with your next post and we'll move on from there.
If it doesn't work for you, then please try this:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/

2)  Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on the "Administrative Events" heading
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504

Use Sysinternals Process Monitor (procmon) to see if you can figure out what app(s) are writing/reading to drives g:, h: + i: -- those 3 seem to be the problem children. ProcMon records every single I/O from your system - for both the file system + registry.

 

ProcMon - download from Microsoft TechNet - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645

 

There is nothing to install. Just extract the EXE file from the zip, RIGHT-click on procmon.exe, select "Run as Administrator"

 

Also run chkdsk on each of the 3 partitions (g:, h:, i: appear to me to be one physical disk drive), e.g., chkdsk g: /r ; chkdsk h: /r ; chkdsk i: /r -- run 1 at a time; re-boot after each.

 

Run HDD diagnostics.  Run SeaTools for DOS, LONG test - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/hardware-tutorials/4072-hard-drive-hdd-diagnostics.html

 

You won't know until after you've started the SesTools test exactly how to select the volume to test.

If Seagate shows that the 1tB drive failed, then it's time to replace that drive.

Strange things can happen once a HDD has failed, including the activity levels you have told us about.

 

Replace the drive and then see if the disk activity decreases.

Here's a scenario that I describe a lot.

As the disk starts dying, the system receives error messages about disk access more and more frequently.

It responds to these errors by double/triple/etc checking itself to make sure that the data that it's reading/writing remains consistent and correct.

The more damage there is, the more it has to check and recheck.

This leads to an increased number of reads (which also hastens the death of the disk), and this shows up as increased disk access' and slower performance (as it's trying and trying to make sure that the data is consistent and correct).

 

The point here is that if there is any data on the disk that you need - recover/copy it NOW.

If you wait, and the disk dies, recovery will become quite expensive (if it's even possible).

I had 100% disk activity for no apparent reason - bottom line, found the SATA data cable not snug in the HDD.  Reset it  and all OK
