Disk Drive Activity

I am seeing activity on a disk drive I connected to my router via USB 3.0. I see what looks like both reading and writing. But I am no running anything on my computer to access the drive. I have even notice this activity when my computer is turned off. Is the router doing this on its own, or is there some other possible source? I have checked the contents of the drive and can find no evidence that anything was changed.

I have an R7000 Dual Band Gigabit Router, but my model is not listed in the list provided by the web site.

Model: R6050|A750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router

... because that is what a media server does, indexes your files so that you can find and play them later.

Just another user with a set of boilerplate macros.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V

It falls under the Nighthawk category. Most likely drive indexing
