  3. High Disk Usage Due to "System" Process?

    So ive been struggling and racking my brain trying to figure out why my disk usage is high to a "system process"... I have tried everything I discovered on the web. These include disabling MSI, disabling windows search, disabling connected user tracking
    (a.k.a. DiagTrack), also looked into registry errors, and i can not figure it out. If anyone has any input or thought its be greatly apprciated.

    My current system build:

    • AMD Ryzen7 1700
    • Gigabyte AX370- K7 Gaming
    • 16GB Corsair Vengence RAM
    • Gigabyte GTX1080
    • 1TB Western Digital HDD
