    Disk Usage at 100% All of the Time


    My computer's disk usage is constantly at 100%. when I check the task manager the most disk intensive process is Service Host: Local System (16) which fluctuates between 20MB/s and 1MB/s.

    Hi,
    First, test your hard disk health with Hard Disk Sentinel tool https://www.hdsentinel.com/If your disk is healthy then that mean it's not a hardware issue but software, and you need Windows Performance Toolkit to identify the root cause; Download and install Windows Performance Toolkit (Just install Windows Performance Toolkit, not the whole package) https://goo.gl/igAC21Then run Windows Performance Recorder (just open Windows menu and type WPR)check these options https://justpaste.it/1d5a6When the disk starts to be heavily used, click start button to begin recording the trace. When you are asked to choose the location where to record your trace file, choose an external storage to not add overhead to the disk.Record for 1 or to 2 minutes to get sufficient data to analyze.When done, compress your trace file, and share the file using https://www.transfernow.net/ or any other file sharing website. I'll analyze your trace and give you a feedback. Please don't forget to zip your trace file !
