* Open a java or xml editor;
* Press any cursor (left, right, up, down), page up/down, home or end keys the disk will be access.
disk is access constantly (if the key is press and hold then the disk is accessed for every repeat, even if the caret at the beginning of the file (i.e. there is no room (space) for the caret to move to) the disk anyway is accessed.
no excessive disk access.

Holding down any cursor key results in constantly writing 150 K/s to disk.
Very annoying with loud hard drives and probably unnecessarily aging SDD drives.
Should be fixed with high priority.
Downgraded to NB 8.1
It's related to file
which is written in high frequency
This is caused by issue #262714. The dev. builds works fine, but release82 branch is missing changeset http://hg.netbeans.org/main-silver/rev/8f112f9b30fb. This change enables editor action logging only if netbeans are started with -J-Dorg.netbeans.editor.ui.actions.logging.detailed=true
Deserves a special patch for NetBeans 8.2.
Integrated into release82:
