What keeps polling my HDD?

I have put a couple of extra drives in a new computer recently (running windows 8), a boot SSD, another secondary SSD and a 2TB WD Green HDD for storage (currently only has a couple of hundred Avi's on). I have gone into power management and set the HDD sleep time to be 2 minutes yet the storage HDD is almost always running, every so often it will stop for a minute or two then start back up for about 10.

Is there anything I can download that will allow me to see what is actually polling the drive so I can disable it? Or is there something standard with W8 that constantly polls all drives?
