In my installation of SQL Server 2012 on my development machine (Win8.1), the process "SQL Server Windows NT - 64 Bit" is running continuously, using up disk resources and filling up my memory over time, even though I'm doing nothing. If I reboot the computer or restart the service called
SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER), then the memory allocation is reset and immediately begins to accumulate again.
How can I identify the operation that SQL Server is running to cause this usage? I don't recall changing any operations or configuration.
Edit: The problem is not just that memory is filled, but also that it continually uses half my disk operation speed (the "Disk" column in Task Manager Processes is at 50-75%). There appears to be an ongoing operation that perhaps has a memory leak. In other words, I am doing no activity and sitting watching the Task Manager and the memory is going up steadily.
