Windows 10: Laptop constantly writing to disk

    Laptop constantly writing to disk


    Alienware 17 running Windows 10 Home. Works fine, but the thing is CONSTANTLY writing to the disk. I know this is way too imprecise to give me a definitive answer, but I fired up the resource monitor and the "system NT Kernel and System" process writes to dozens of files constantly...

    It's been on for over 4 hours and it's STILL writing constantly. Almost no reading...

    I have NOTHING running other than the stuff that starts with Windows, and VERY little of that since the Startup section of the task manager has pretty much every disabled. I even turned OFF wi-fi so it COULDN'T do anything stupid over the metered connection and it STILL sat there writing constantly

    I can't imagine that this is normal and I"m wondering how to figure out what to do next. Ideas?

    Gracie,

    Can you identify which files it is writing to? It may help us narrow down the problem, if there is one.

    Just a guess but maybe it's indexing. Have you made and major data additions/changes recently? You could always just suspend indexing and see if that quiets things down. It also might be your antivirus scanning while your machine isn't being used. Some AVs let you put them into silent mode that temporarily suspends any background scanning. You could try that.

    Hi, please post a screenshot or shots of your task manager organising any columns of interest high to low by clicking on the relevant tab.
    Use the icon to the left of the video icon above your post.

    Have you at any time altered the page file settings?

    Please also download and run Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) and post a screenshot of that for any disks of interest. (Or similar if your disk configuration is unsuitable for that). Thanks.

    Noted you have a RAID configuration. Are there any issues with that?

    It sounds as if you may have a lot of images. Have you configured Photos, Albums? Or music albums with Groove? Sometimes these cause problems.

    (Search Indexing if working properly should back off as soon as you start using your PC, so unlikely).

    Well, I've been using the laptop since I wrote the original post. And it's continued churning its brains out for the entire time. Slowing down image processing and generally being a pain in my *ss.

    I have NOT made any significant changes, not even any MINOR changes in a while - OTHER than MS shoving that $%^YU*&^% update onto the laptop a couple weeks ago. I suspect its been crap ever since.....

    No music albums. No Groove. No Skype. No Google Chrome.

    CURRENTLY, the thing is beating its brains out on edb.log and its neighbors. As near as I can tell, edb is supposed to have something to do with indexing, which I SHOULDN'T even be doing as far as I know.

    I have windows search turned off. I have DISABLED the Windows Search service. I have checked the indexing and UNCHECKED EVERYTHING. As far as I know, NOTHING should be getting indexed.

    I'm not sure where the RAID came up - this is a laptop. Normal, ordinary, boring Alienware laptop. Has a 256GB SSD for the primary drive and a 1TB HDD for image data.

    Images are NOT indexed for Photos or any other application except Lightroom. That's where they're managed.

    I"ve never changed the page file. The only virtual memory there, is 2432MB that's system managed on the C drive, and has been since day 1.

    I"ve got a snip of the resource manager, so here it is:
    Attachment 132830

    Worst case, I'll do what I had to do to the OTHER laptop after the "creator" updated - blow the whole thing away and start over installing Windows. Which will greatly p*ss me off, but I have to have this thing working 'cause it has actual WORK to do...

    I can try downloading Hard Disk Sentinel when I get home and see if it says anything useful.

    Still hoping somebody has an idea 'cause I do NOT want to have to rebuild thing thing...

    Hi- RAID is in your system specs. Your last post is the first mention of a laptop....

    Unfortunately your attachment isn't valid for some reason.

    Please post your task manager screenshot or shots organising the relevant column high to low by clicking on the column tab like this when your PC should be nominally idle, using the icon to the left of the video icon above your post text, tooltip 'Insert Image'

    Being able to see what's running is a major starting point for suggestions.

    Then please try a clean boot, and again post a task manager screenshot or shots.

    I'll look forward to the Hard Disk Sentinel report (despite its name it does report on SSDs)

    There should be no need to turn Windows search indexing off on a properly functioning system - doing that is an XP or so legacy and should only be needed if diagnosing some particular problem.

    OK, I put in the second system - the laptop.

    This is right after a clean boot. This is what it looks like 20 seconds after booting. And it'll just sit there and churn indefinitely.

    Here's the resource monitor

    Here's what Hard Disk Sentinel says, though it doesn't appear to know what the SSD is...

    I don't see anything interesting, but that doesn't mean there's not something obvious...

    Hopefully, all this will help y'all tell me what to do to fix this... Thanks.

    .. but no network activity? So it can't be a download... GracieAllen - can you confirm nothing is being downloaded given the task man screenshot was just after logging in?

    It desperately tries to work, but it fails. Unless OP does not want CU, there is no reason to postpone it.
