    100% disk usage


    Ever since a few months ago I've been having problems with my disk usage on my PC alienware aurora r9. Even after trying nearly everything I could find online disabling superfetch, turning off antivirus, disabling windows search, restarting, updating, changing power plan, etc. etc., not a single solution I found made a dent in my disk usage. It used to be the case that, after a while of having my windows/tabs open, it would go down to normal levels, but it now stays at a steady 100% the entire time. I can't watch videos, I can't play games reliably, I can barely open any software

    :)

    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.
