    Why does me disk usage spike to 100% when playing games


    Just recently when playing games on my pc control panel will show my disk usage at 100% and the games with stutter a bit. This recently started happening
    I checked my HDD health with Crystal Disk Info and it says it's good. Anyone else experiencing this issue I could really use some help

    Have you actually tried monitoring with task manger while a game is running?

    There can be a correlation between the amount of RAM that is installed and whether the game or Windows is accessing the Virtual Memory/paging file on the drive. More of each can be quite beneficial in such cases.

    I disabled superfetch and Xbox game dvr that seemed to help stop the problems on most games . But I still get high disk usage in fallout 4. I have 8gb ram and a GTX 1060 3gb and a Core I5 4570 3.2ghz
