    Disk Usage going up and down from 100% to 10% and then to 50%..


    Tried literally everything I saw on the internet. Disabled search service helped a bit i think, chdsk did nothing and neither did deactivating SysMain. Please help me! Specs: Zotac GTX 1060 3gb + I-7700 + 8GB RAM and 2 HDD's

    I reinstalled windows 2 months ago because of this issue and didn't have it until I installed steam and some of my games.

    Memory is also always at 50% even when idling so um anything that could help? cause my pc is slowing down because of this,

    :)

  2. Memory at 50% and Disk usage at 100%

    So I bought a brand new gaming laptop and it came with Windows 8 and so I used that for the first day or two and there were no problems. I installed Windows 10 and now the ram/disk was both at 100% most of the time. I was able to fix some mem leak though
    the memory is ALWAYS at 50% now and the disk usage is at 100% for the first 30 minutes after start-up. How can I fix these problems?

    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:
