    Ntoskrnl disk usage on secondary drive.


    I'm on Windows 10 Version 1809 (OS Build 17763.253) and i'm getting low disk usage on my secondary (DNtoskrnl disk usage on secondary drive. :) and (ENtoskrnl disk usage on secondary drive. :) drives, the disk usage is low but it's very audible as I can hear my Hard Disk Drives, my OS drive is a SSD. The disk usage happens at random and is annoying. No other drive should be even accessed unless I access them manually through File Explorer or by launching an application, game, movie, music, picture, etc. Why is ntoskrnl.exe causing disk usage on my secondary drives? System protection is only enabled on my OS drive (SSD) as well as virtual memory. I don't have any viruses or programs set to launch automatically from my secondary drives either. I disabled runtime broker by renaming it so that disk usage hog is out of the way, now ntoskrnl.exe is causing problems.

    :)

    100% Disk Usage on Secondary Hard Drive

    I'm not too sure entirely if this is Windows 10 or the hard drive, but recently on one of my secondary drives, the disk usage spikes up to 100% and stays at max for a long time. The capacity of the hard drive is 1TB and I've split it into two partitions.
    I noticed this happens when I use the Dolphin Emulator and access files from the "GAME" partition I made or when I play games on the "GAME" partition. Windows doesn't lag, but the application(s) in question slow down to a standstill without any real reason
    it seems.

    Thank you for your advice and help.

  3. 100% Disk Usage on Secondary Hard Drive

    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for posting your query in Micro soft Community.

    I understand that you get High disk usage error while playing game. I’ll certainly help you with this.

    Bad sectors on the hard drive can be a cause for high disk usage.

    Method1: Check which process is utilizing the Hard Disk on Windows 8.1, you may try the following steps.

    1.Open Task Manager and click on Details tab.

    2.Right click the columns headers and click "Select Columns".

    3.From the "Select Columns" window, check: I/O Reads, I/O Writes, I/O read bytes, I/O write bytes and then click OK.

    4.Now the columns will be added to the view and will display how much each process is utilizing from the hard disk.

    5.Sort by I/O read bytes or I/O write bytes by clicking on the column header to see which process is utilizing the Hard Drive most.

    If you not run the 'check disk' scan or tried optimizing the drive, follow the steps from this article.

    Improve performance by optimizing your drive

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/improve-performance-optimizing-hard-drive



    Important note: While performing check disk on the hard drive, if any bad sectors are found on the hard drive, it tries to repair that sector and any data available on that might be lost.

    Method 2: Run Microsoft Safety Scanner

    Refer the link below to download the Microsoft Safety scanner

    http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx?wa=wsignin1.0

    Important note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner expires 10 days after being downloaded. To rerun a scan with the latest anti-malware definitions, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Any data files that are infected may only be cleaned by deleting the file entirely, which means there is a potential for data loss.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.

    100% Usage on Secondary HDD

    I'm sure that isn't a problem with my HDD. I've just bought this brand new WD 4TB HDD. And on the top of this inquiry, I mentioned that something wired is that the 100% usage jumps between HDDs. It's disk E,F,G this time and it would be disk C,D or H,L next
    time after I restart.(I have 3 Secondary Hdds).

    The 100% occurs only when some applications are making use of the disk, such as file copying.
