    Issue: 100% Disk Activity : Svchost - NTFS Volume Log File


    Disk Activity : 100 % for hours

    From Perfmon:
    Highest Disk Activity by svchost.exe on NTFS Volume Log file
    Im guessing its indexing & Stopped Windows search service, but No immediate change in Disk Activity.

    Any thoughts whats happening here or a possible fix please?

    Run CMD as admin and copy/paste:

    fsutil usn deletejournal /d /n c:
    chkdsk /scan

    If it does not help, you might need to run the full scan:

    chkdsk %SystemDrive% /r
