    What does DiskDiagnosticDataCollector contribute to the O/S. Is it non-destructive to O/S if removed or disabled. IF this app not Microsoft spy why is it hidden under Task scheduler>Microsoft>Windows>DiskDiagnosticDataCollector. NO scripted answers.

    possible fix im testing now

    Open Task Scheduler. Under Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft delete the following items:

    • Everything under “Application Experience”
    • Everything under “Autochk”
    • Everything under “Customer Experience Improvement Program”
    • Under “Disk Diagnostic” delete only the “Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticDataCollector”
    • Under “Maintenance” “WinSAT”
    • “Media Center” and click the “status” column, then select all non-disabled entries and disable them.

    100% Disk Usage on one of two SSD's, Windows is slow at opening programs/running

    Hey Sakiskid,

    Hopefully this information is more useful than my last response:

    Temp fix via Command prompt:

    right click start button

    choose command prompt (admin)

    type wpr-cancel and press enter

    or

    Temp fix via services:

    Task Manager> Services> Find DiagTrack > right click and **STOP**

    both of these require you to re enter the fix after a restart. It will survive a normal shutdown/restart

    Permanent fix:

    right click start button

    choose command prompt (admin)

    type sc stop DiagTrack and press enter

    type sc delete DiagTrack and press enter

    Then open Task Scheduler; under Task Scheduler Library -> Microsoft delete the following items:

    Everything under “Application Experience”

    Everything under “Autochk”

    Everything under “Customer Experience Improvement Program”

    Under “Disk Diagnostic” delete only the “Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticDataCollector”

    Of course this caveat ALWAYS applies: Make proper backups before applying.

    this fix won't fix all cases of 100% disc usage, just the recent one
