List of current issues
some app keep accessing the disk at some point of the day
Steps taken, but have been unsuccessful?
listed apps in task manager sorting by disk usage
It is a couple days now, no modifications on my system. At some point I clearly hear disk access (not sure if read or write) like if some app is at work. I tried to lookup the task manager and sort by disk usage as in the picture below but could not figure out what was keeping the disk busy, there is no software update going, neither windows update. I have no backup/copying program at work and I have all background apps in windows disabled, finally no app is downloading or actively working, I also tried closing the browser.

ProcLogger is a free product from NoVirusThanks, it keeps a continuous log of everything that runs on your computer, with lots of details. You could try installing it, or an equivalent app. When you notice disk activity, note the exact time (down to the second, if you can) and check the log. It will tell you what was cooking.

I just wanted to update everyone; I have deleted the Emsisoft quick scan chedule and today the PC is quiet. I hav ereported the case as I have reason to think that the scheduler does not consider the day of execution, also considering the time of read/write it might not be a quick scan as planned but a full scan.
