    HDD Disk Usage Suddenly Goes Up to 100 and Comes Back


    Hi there,

    I have an ASUS laptop with these specs:

    CPU: Intel Core i7 6700HQ

    RAM: 16GB DDR4

    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 960m + Intel HD Graphics 530

    2TB HDD + 128GB SSD

    Windows 10 v1709 x64


    Windows is installed on the SSD drive to perform faster, but it seems like it has a problem with the HDD drives. When I try to browse the files on the HDD (opening documents, music, etc.) after some time, the computer (or the app which is used to open the files) freezes for 2-3 seconds and then it responds again, and it keeps doing this!

    I checked Task Manager for disk usage. When the apps freeze, the disk usage for the HDD goes up to 100 and it responds again when it comes to 0 or a number near that.


    Is there a conflict between SSD and HDD?

    Thanks in Advance!

    :)

    Disk Usage at 100% with nothing running

    My PC is running Windows 10 with the latest updates but has suddenly become unusable with disk usage staying at 100% even with nothing running and just the same processes listed in Task Manager as before the problems
    started. I've tried a few suggestions found in online forums - disabling Windows Search and Superfetch, adjusting page file size, etc. but nothing has done the trick yet. I don't have any outside anti-virus software installed. I read about the potential MSI
    issue but don't have IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers listed in the Device Manager. Finally, it seems to boot up normally and will have periods where the disk usage drops and it's usable but those moments are brief and it inevitably goes back up to 100% usage.

    disk usage 100%

    Hello,

    I am having a new DELL laptop and I have upgraded to Win10 Pro. There was no issues for the last two weeks and suddenly my system is getting slow.

    The task manager is showing 100% disk usage most of the time Screenshot even though I'm not using any applications. I have tried disk check but it shows no errors.

    I have uninstalled recently installed programs and tried several possibilities but nothing helps. Can someone suggest a solution?

    My system spec is 4G RAM, 1TB HDD, Intel i3 4th gen. Any help will be appreciated.

    HDD Disk Usage Suddenly Goes Up to 100 and Comes Back

    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:
