100% Disk Usage in Windows? Here's How to Fix It!

Prefer to read this instead?

Your computer is hanging. Same old Windows, right? Except you’re using a brand new Windows 8.x or Windows 10 device; you’ve only had it a few days. So just what is going on?

Investigating, you discover that your system drive is running at 100%. Surely this can’t be right? Sadly, it is. The latest versions of Windows have a problem with the drives being over worked, which slows down the operating system. This issue affects both hard disk drives (HDDs) and solid state drives (SSDs).

Several fixes are available for this, depending upon what exactly is causing the problem.

  30. Z Hi 2 1 hour ago

    Honestly, Windows 10 is worse than Vista, and Vista was verifiably a deliberately released piece of software that was designed to be slow and buggy – there were leaks of microsoft staff suggesting that its a good idea to release an incomplete and unstable OS to the public. I honestly think the same happened again with windows 10.

  35. Anwyll Music 1 hour ago

    So, I tried all the suggestions to resolve the 100% disk usage, and none of them worked except Formatting and reinstalling Windows 10. I did this about a month ago and my laptop is running smoothly. I guess the thing about windows, it needs a refresh every 6 months or so. I have been running my Mac for 6 years on the same OS…and I thought my windows machine can get that sort of mileage…but lesson learned. I will reformat my windows laptop every 6 months.

    Skype was the reason.
