3TB MyBook Live and Smartware 1.6.4

Hello, I am noticing that my drive is constantly being written to when smartware 1.6.4 backup is enabled.  The machine is not being used and has sat idle over night.  Is this normal?  Im a little worried about wear and tear on the drive and how long the drive can last?



Smartware stops the computer going to sleep. I tried to get a response from WD but they failed. There is a problem with WD software. I guess you are using Windows 7. WD did not come up with a solution Iam afraid.
