    The disk usage on my PC is almost always at 100%, even with no programs running. I've disabled prefetch and superfetch, but to no avail. I also tried uninstalling skype and tweaking my chrome settings like a lot of other forums suggested to do.

    This is extremely frustrating as whenever I try to do anything my computer locks up.\

    Thanks for the help!

    Specs:

    Intel i5 4460 3.2Ghz
    8GB RAM
    7200RPM 1TB HDD

    Did you check WHAT program is using disk , in task manager?

    Did you disabled disk indexing?
    That' could we WIndows defender or your antivirus using a default daily planned scan ?

    It may be OneDrive. I recently had this issue after an update and traced it to OneDrive trying to upload my C:\Users\<my name> to the cloud (so basically 95% of my HDD).

    Check your OneDrive folder and make sure that it isn't doing that. If you find C:\Users\<your name> inside OneDrive, simply delete the folder from that location.

    It varies sometimes but usually its either System and compressed memory, or Microsoft compatibility telemetry. They take up anywhere from 4 MB/s to 30 MB/s.
