Windows 10: Hard Drive constantly at or near 100% read/write
I suggest you research that process. There's almost nothing on this forum about it, so it's not a familiar problem. What is evident from searching the internet is that others have seen it related to disk activity.
Further simple steps:
1. Does this happen if you do a clean boot?
2. If not, enable more until it does occur.
3. Try to reach a conclusion.
I've given you two other possible steps previously.
There is probably a better answer out there, but it will take a bit more persistence.
Not all problems get instant solutions.
On Task Manager can you photo Startup tab please ?
Holly smokes, do you really need all of that running all the time ?
4GB of RAM can easily be clogged up with so many things running and disk can get pretty busy swapping memory.

RAM is only 36% used according to a previous screenshot. To reduce disk usage, you need to focus on the process that's using it.
Most of the stuff in the panel were on the computer when I bought it. Exceptions: Seagate Dashboard, Skype, Logitech Download Assistant. And, yes, memory can get taken up. I have little expertise with the remaining items, which were I thought, system startup modules. As for Chromium, I have set it to Disable.
I would keep only 2, 4, 7 and 8, everything else you can start when needed, no need to run all the time.
& if you don't use "7" you can switch that of on the hidden icons in the taskbar in onedrive settings telling it not to start at all as it's just a waste of resources if active for no reason.
Hello, I just installed the latest build of Windows 10 and am running into some problems that never occurred to me before. My previous version of Windows 10 failed because of some system restore custom app that I downloaded so I had to reinstall....
I have a network of computers in my office running on windows 7 and one main computer running on windows 10. I have a folder shared on my windows 10 pc and i can access this folder on all computers on my network. I can read but not write on...
I have spent literally days trying to figure this out on my own, and thought I'd finally solicit some advice.
I have a program that I want to prevent *anyone* (including me, as an administrator) from moving, deleting, or otherwise disabling.
my problem is kinda strange and very annoying
this problem started a month ago
when i try to access , copy or read data from my HDD there is no problem at all
but when i try to copy or move new data to my External hard drive copying speed...
I have had two BSODs this morning, the first was PFN list corrupt closely followed by Write to read only memory.
This is a clean install of Windows 10, I thought it might cure the BSODs but no such luck. So glad to find this forum.
