  1. 100% disk usage after a shut down post-update/restart


    Ever since I have updated my windows 10 home Dell laptop to 1803, I have experienced an abnormality after an update. After the viewing usual restart to fully install the updates, everything is fine afterwards and I shut down fine. Next time I turn it back on is another story.

    When I turn it back on and log in, my Disk is basically glued to 100% disk usage. Last time this happened (on June 14th, the day after the update), aside from flickering down to 98% momentarily, it took two whole hours for my disk to go back to normal. As I write this I’m stuck in the same situation again with my disk stuck at 100% for an hour now. It went down to 90% for a second, and then bounced back up to 100% where it now stays at.

    Looking at the task manager, nothing is being shown to be eating my disk, with all values at 0.1mb. Naturally, this has me incredibly freaking frustrated that I have to wait 2 damn hours to even use my damn laptop, if going by what happened last time, and would like some help so this doesn’t keep happening.

  2. 100% disk usage

    The most common cause of 100% disk usage appears to be Superfetch and Prefetch, but there are also other causes. You can try disabling both these features and see if it helps.

    This article provides steps to disable prefecth and superfetch:

    100% disk usage and memory usage

    Hi,

    100% disk usage and memory usage can be caused by a software corruption, running application running on the background and malware or virus infection.

    For us to properly isolate the issue and provide an appropriate resolution, kindly answer the questions below:

    • Did the issue happen after installing the Fall Creators?
    • Did you receive any error messages?
    • Can you send us the screenshot of the Task Manager showing the 100% disk usage and memory usage?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    For isolation purposes, please perform a clean boot to see if the same issue will occur. Refer to this
    article for more information on how to perform a clean boot
    in Windows.

    Looking forward to your response.
