I've been tracking head and building a windows build using a

roughly 1-3 seconds.

Its a little sporadic (in the sense it doesn't necessarily happen on
every diskaccess) but quite consistant and frequent.

What can I do to assist in tracking down what's causing this?  Or
perhaps I am the only person seeing this and it is a local system issue?

I certainly don't see this behavior in a GNU/Linux environment.

Thank you!

When I experience what you describe it's because the disk being written/read to/from is "cold" and is starting up again. When this happens on Windows 7, it gives off a sound similar to "blooOOoOoop!!"
