    My computer's disk being at 100% very often.


    Some context: Me and my brother both have the same computer, the Acer Nitro AN515-42, mine is year to a year and a half older than his, yet his performs much better than my computer. For example when we're playing Fortnite He plays at medium to high graphics and gets a pretty consistent 60 fps and 90 in the lobby. While I have mine at the lowest possible except for 3D resolution and my computer can only hit 30-40 fps when I am standing still and not moving my camera, move my camera 90 degrees and I get 5 fps, full 180 and it stops rendering for half a second at least.


    Is there anything I could do or check to make sure my computer is running the best it can?

    :)

    My computer's disk being at 100% very often.

    Disk is always at 100%

    Hi Richard,

    Some bugs or disk drive errors may cause high disk utilization. If your task manager shows 100% disk utilization, you may need to optimize Windows by following these troubleshooting methods:

    Disable Windows Search

    Some bug in Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 causes some "search loop" that causes maximum utilization of your disk. To disable
    Windows Search, kindly follow these steps:

    • Press Windows + R to open Run.
    • Type services.msc and press Enter.
    • Scroll down to find Windows Search, right-click it, and select
      Properties.
    • Change the Startup type to Disabled and save the changes.

    Disable Superfetch Service

    Superfetch service has been identified as a possible cause of 100% disk utilization on Windows 10. To disable Superfetch service, kindly follow these steps:

    • Press Windows + X and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type net.exe stop superfetch and press Enter.
    • Wait for a minute for the changes to apply and close the Command Prompt.

    Let us know how things goes.

    Regards.
