  1. Random 100% HDD read spikes


    Hi,


    I'm experiencing system wide stuttering due to secondary disk usage. My primary disk is SSD.
    Stuttering completelety freezes PC for 1-3 seconds. I've tried using Process Monitor from Sysinternals but did not found any process writing or reading from HDD during that spikes. Last time I had this issue I had to install Windows again. Don't wanna do that.


    Did anyone experience something like this?


    Cheers

    Insanely slow HDD random read/write


    I'm playing tech support for a relative, and her (ASUS K53E) laptop SATA HDD has insanely slow random read/write. Sequential r/w is around 74 MB/s, which seems fine, but random is around 1 MB/s. Hard disk health is fine according to S.M.A.R.T. Win10 1709 Pro x64. Pentium B960; HM65 Express chipset using the Microsoft Standard SATA AHCI Controller driver. Windows update doesn't have any driver updates; Intel driver tool returns nothing; Asus website has no Windows 10 drivers. I'm at a loss, any suggestions?

    100% Disk usage spike on Windows 10

    Recently I have experienced that when running most applications (especially gaming) my Laptop would have a disk usage spike to 99% or 100%. when I check the task manager there is no specific program using the disk, its just at 100% usually forcing me to
    do a hard restart. baring in mind that when I run the programs the usually run smoothly and very randomly the disk usage spikes. this has only been happening since downloading windows 10. I have read many threads and applied many fixes such as disabling SuperFetch,
    BIT service and windows update. I have also disable cloud based protection which seemed to work for some people but not for me, any other suggestions?
