my mac was getting really slow so i wiped and reloaded the hd. it was zippy for a couple hours, then started bogging down again. i saw huge amounts of data being written to the hd when i wasn't using my computer, 10+ GB over a couple days i was only checking email. how can i find out what program is writing to my hd?

thanks in advance for your help.

A: What is your email client?
B: Press Command (alt) I to see the sizes of folders. Check your home folder. If the extra stuff is in there, check Users>Your Shortname>Library folder. If not then check the Library folder and the System folder.
C: Is your system updating itself?
