Think about how many different assets are viewable in Home. Every different outfit must be loaded and rendered when a request is made to be viewed (such as when someone new loads into a space within your field of vision). Each such load accesses the HDD. Then, when memory is needed, assets not being used (like the outfit of someone who left the space a while ago) are unloaded and whatever new asset call is loaded, causing more HDD access. Compound this by memory held in use by the space your in, your own assets (character model, outfit, companion, etc.), chat log, and the Home process itself, you're going to have that much less flex space and, by extension, that much more HDD activity for moving assets.

In short, yes, constant HDD access in a busy space is normal. Sorry for the overly verbose explanation, but I've been in that mood today :smileyhappy:
