    Disk usage 100% most of the time


    Hi.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 7000 2 in 1, with a solid state hybrid drive Seagate 500LM.


    It has been really frustrating using Windows 10 with it, since it´s extremely slow most of the times, with the hard disk showing 100%.


    I have been searching it over the web, and many dell laptop users have been facing the same problem, where Intel and Microsoft keep throwing the problem to each other.


    I looked up about people telling it could be the driver managing the disk in windows 10.

    I tried installing the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver, but it says the platform is not supported.


    So far, haven´t solved it, and hope to get some solutions from you.

    Let me know what I can do to solve.


    Thank you.

    :)

    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.
