  1. Disk Usage 100% Windows 10 Pro


    My dad's pc which runs windows 10 pro has had the well-known 100% disk usage issue. I built him this work-pc about 2 years ago, so I know the computer's hardware should be fine. I have tried scanning the disk for errors and updating important drivers but neither have worked. The computer still has periods where the disk usage is fine, then spikes up to 100% for a few minutes at a time. This is a huge issue preventing him from working and I would appreciate any other ideas that could help.


    P.S. Ive had this issue on a laptop in the past and the superfetch issue didn't do anything so I haven't bothered with that yet.

    :)

    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:
