    Well, problem came back today. This time I tried to look at the resource monitor while attempting to watch a video and couldn't make any sense of what was going on. Took some screenshots of the task manager and resource monitor. Right now I'm in the process of updating my computer to see if that helps. If anyone has some advice based on my screenshots then that would be amazing.

    ShareX is the program I use to take screenshots

    Also, it's worth noting that the 100% disk usage screenshot from the task manager is when the video is NOT being played.

    I can't really see anything, sorry. The disk 2 is active 100% of the time but actual I/O is minimal. The only files accessed are G:\$LogFile (write) and G:\Videos\McCree (read) but these are not at the same time as the task manager screen shot I guess and look normal anyway. Perhaps sort Resource monitor by file in case there something else not in the screen prints?

    Have you tried this? It seems improbable but you never know... Windows 10 high Disk usage (100%)

    Yeah, it was really hard to take screenshots since the disk was operating at 100% so the times are off. I have seen that thread actually and turning off the notifications were my first step since it seems like such an easy fix. No luck however with that suggestion. I just updated to anniversary and disabled superfetch. The two task manager screenshots were taken at nearly the same time. Shows 33% disk and 100% on the other screen which I'm guessing is because I have 3 drives.

    If this error occurs again, should I screenshot the processes under G:? I wasn't sure how to sort it so I sorted by the processes that were using the most. The McCree video is what I use to test the HDD read speed which is why it's there.

    Yeah, I think concentrating on G (and H) is the way forward - the others look fine. I'm at a loss what to suggest though.

    Alright I'll do this next time if it happens (hopefully not). Yup, I have no idea what to do anymore. Tried so many fixes and can't come up with any good results. If anything I'll try a reinstall, replace the drive, or get someone to look at the computer.

    This isn't a problem with system and compressed memory. Suggest you check your pagefile settings and page fault stats.

    You could do some disk checks including throughput capacity.

    This is what I have it set to now. Not really sure what it should be at. I set it back to automatic after I found out that having it on manual can be an issue with system and compressed memory. Originally it was turned off which may have been caused by SSD settings in Samsung Magician? I'm not sure, but I didn't set it to manual before that. Just for clarification, C: is SSD1 E: and F: is SSD2 and G: H: is the regular HDD that's been having issues.

    Not quite sure how to test page fault or throughput? I ran some disk checks before and no errors were returned, but that was probably different from what you are mentioning..

    It should be ok- I was looking at your first screenshot, where C has some high bursts of activity, but then your fourth shows continuous usage on G/H with little RAM use. So nothing to do with paging.. sorry, too quick off the mark now I've read it again.

    Any suggestions on where to go from here? I've ran disk checks and everything appears to be healthy on that drive. Even ran defragments as well.
