HDD Constantly Scanning Contents?

When I access certain items in the hdd the first time, it takes 5 - 10 seconds to scan things inside. After some time, it will do this again if accessed again. It always does this and I want to know if I can make it happen less. (It usually does this when browsing through music files using Steam's music player)

    There's a background application doing that behind your back. If you can sniff out the culprit, uninstall at once. Start with a virus checker.

    • I know what makes it scan, it's the Steam Music player whenever I access the music files on the HDD. This is I want to use it, but it always seems to 'Scan' after long amounts of inactivity. I want to know how to have it do that less.
