    Disk Usage at 100%, STILL!


    So freaking annoying. For the last 6 or 7 months, my laptop has been super laggy. I had Win 10 installed, all updated. Disk Usage was at 100% every time I rebooted and for a long time after the desktop loaded. It meant it would take about 10 minutes for things to calm down enough that I could actually do anything. I did all the run-throughs online to resolve the error, multiple times. I tried everything I could find. Finally I had enough and did a reinstall of Win 10, the version that keeps my personal files. I figured, ok, I'll have to reinstall a ton of stuff, but at least it won't be happening anymore. I just rebooted the new install and IT'S STILL AT 100% DISK USAGE! Now, I have to reinstall a ton of software and STILL have the problem. I swear I'm ready to ditch windows altogether. Same thing is happening on my wife's laptop. Win 10 is garbage.

    :)

  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.
