    100% disk usage when gaming 9aU4g4lfWLg_KwDwd6CQeNHkGVkINDf9Xv_4P4-eaAk.jpg

    Hello,

    I know that there are a ton of postings about this but i have been trying to get rid of this problem for half a year now. When playing games that were located on my hdd, my hdd it used to randomly jump to 100% usage. As of late, my ssd gets to 100% usage even if the game is installed on my hdd and it's constantly on 100% until I tab out of the game. Then it drops to 0% and then again 100% when i tab in. It's really frustrating. I was hoping that the problem was the hdd so i could just replace it with a 2nd ssd but i don't think that's the case.

    It makes it impossible to game. Game freezes, System freezes, game sound bugged etc. The problem usually lasts for several days, then disapppears magically. But the problem always reoccured after couple of weeks.

    I tried: disabling Windows Search, Superfetch|chkdsk command|in place upgrade|disabling Ms defender|virus scan

    Win 10 Home
    16 GB Ram
    Radeon RX 580
    Ryzen 5 1600
    1 TB toshiba p300 HDD
    128gb intenso ssd

    Would appreciate any possible solutions

  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.
