  1. 100% disk usage even when I have lots of disk space


    My task manager is constantly at 100 percent disk, and it really effects performance. I have lots of disk space so why is this a problem? It's really annoying, sometimes I get a bit of time where it's at 30 percent or so but then it goes back up to 100%. I've had this problem for a while, how can I fix it?

    :)
