HDD constantly running up

Running a pi2 using openelec 5.0.8 at the moment.

I have a 2tb hdd connected via USB (75% full if this helps), this seems to be whirring away loudly as though it is always being accessed by the pi. If I shut the pi down the HDD drops to its standby mode, and when the pi is back on the HDD is always at full work rate, even though I'm not using anything on the HDD.

Is there an option that I've missed where the pi is always checking files or something? I don't want the HDD burning out on me.

Any help appreciated. Thanks
