I recently installed an external backup drive. The drive is continuously being accessed by either Norton or Windows XP-Pro. It appears that my main drive is also being accessed. I'm concerned about excessive wear on the drives. What can I do?

I'm not sure what you mean by contantly accessing the drives. Do you heard the drive heads constantly moving or see the activity light on most of the time? Or do you see the activity light flash quickly once per second or so?

If the later, it is normal. Windows and Norton are just doing their stuff quietly in the background.
