    explorer.exe increases I/O write bytes

      I have a Toshiba laptop, core i5, Intel x25M 80G G2. My question is: Does anyone know why the explorer.exe process generates too much I/O write bytes? A simple search on my home network, or the copy of a file from one external drive to another increases as if the file was actually copied temporarily on the internal drive. I check everyday the SMART attributes with the Toolbox and a simple day of file-sharing ends with exaggerated increase of writings on the drive.
