Title: 100% Disk Usage? Is it a PROBLEM OR NOT?
Post by: MSI Notebook Administrator on October 27, 2017, 12:40:02 AM
===============================================

On June 29th, 2015, Microsoft released their new Operating System - Windows 10 to the world. Available by download and on sale online, this new Operating System is both familiar and a little challenging. Some says its beautiful, and some are still hugging the previous versions. Nevertheless time will come that we will left with no choice other than using the latest releases from Microsoft.


Today's users of Windows 10 Operating System bumps on to a strange and/or annoying 100% Disk Usage after buying a new notebook or desktop, and even updating from the previous versions. The question is, "Is it a PROBLEM or NOT?". Let's answer it here :)

(https://i.imgur.com/GjUF1lj.jpg)

"Why is my HDD running on a 100% even when I am doing nothing????????" - A similar question from thousands of users of Windows 10. After checking out several different system that had the  100%  disk usage problem I found out that each one ended up having a different cause so it is hard to say what the fix would be. But I can give you some ideas to help isolate the cause down.

If your Notebook or Desktop was bought with Operating System pre-installed out of the box:

         If you are encountering 100% Disk on your newly bought desktop and notebook, this may caused by Windows Indexing. It helps searching by building a list of all of the files located on your system for faster queries. Essentially it is a small database. Windows will index the most common user file locations by default, which you can modify to your liking. Be careful with this feature however, the biggest mistake is adding large locations to the index, such as your entire disk. Actions like this will cause your disk to run at a 100% for most of the time and it may also cause very poor performance.Indexing may take time to finish, we know its a bit annoying but that's a MUST in using a Windows Operating System. But don't worry, IT IS NOT A PROBLEM. Even when you are using older versions, your system had gone to Indexing too. Its just that Windows 10 indeed is a big drawer of files inside your Notebooks or Desktops. To help it finish indexing faster, you may try the following steps:


1. Use your notebook or desktop normally.

2. Connect to the internet as always as possible


3. Always do a proper shut down process

4. Always perform a clean boot process.

5. Always keep your Operating System Updated. (and your Drivers too) keep an eye to your Drivers because sometime, some of those are not included once you update with Windows Update

        Days will come and you'll notice that annoying behavior vanishing :)


For those who encounters the same behavior who have been using Windows 10 for a long period of time:
         As I have said above, 100% Disk was caused by different problems, and it includes your hardware. If you are using Windows 10 for a long period of time and noticed that your Disk is running at 100%, you may try the following steps first:


1. Download the latest updates thru Windows Update.

2. Download the latest Drivers for your Device.

3. Perform a proper Shut Down process.

4. Perform a clean boot process.

5. Check your disk for any errors.



Run CHKDSK trough Command Prompt:


1. Open an elevated Command Prompt (Press the Windows + X button at the same time, then choose Command Prompt (Admin).

2. Type the following command, and replace the X with the drive letter you wish to scan: “CHKDSK X:”, we suggest you use “CHKDSK X: /F”, only then it can correct errors.

3. Hit the enter key, Command Prompt will now start CHKDSK.

Here's How to make your Windows stop indexing..

Open Properties of your System drive, usually C: and untick Indexing. Click O.K. If Windows asks you to ignore things, clickIgnore all.

Open Services.msc console and disable Windows Search. First stop the service.

(https://filestore.community.support.microsoft.com/api/images/baee2489-b6a0-4b90-805c-d31f5464ec68) (https://filestore.community.support.microsoft.com/api/images/baee2489-b6a0-4b90-805c-d31f5464ec68)

This is my computer with indexing in action and I have zero CPU and disk activities shown in Task Manager:

(https://filestore.community.support.microsoft.com/api/images/7e3c3fa5-02b8-4c34-a85d-8d0e304cec59) (https://filestore.community.support.microsoft.com/api/images/7e3c3fa5-02b8-4c34-a85d-8d0e304cec59)

If you have more than one drive/partition, pls untick search indexing in all of them. That you can do by intuition.

Leave your computer on by itself for some time. That eases off indexing job load on your system if some hidden indexing service is running to finish off the job.

If your complaint is continuous high cpu and disk usage, as I mentioned above,  indexing may not be the cause.

========== Disabling Cortana

to delete SearchUI.exe
a.k.a. Cortana

and here is how
follow the instructions in the video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lv1hUew3hGE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lv1hUew3hGE)
also when i was changing the ownership i had to add "\users" at the end of the phrase.

so far cortana is gone, hope she wont return in the next update

And if those steps didn't solve your problem, you may be needing to reformat your device (All files will be lost) and/or replace the hardware where your windows is installed (It may be you HDD, or SSD).

        In line with this, we must learn that troubleshooting will always starts from your software before thinking to unscrew and open your precious device :).

Students nowadays prefer to get Statistics Homework Help (https://www.statisticshomeworkhelper.com/) and extra tutoring services online. If asked why, most of them say that the online Statistics Assignment Help (https://www.statisticsassignmentexperts.com/) experts do it for pay, thereby going out of the way to deliver their best to impress the client (the student). Likewise, since they need to improve their profile rating, they'll do everything in their capacity to make the client happy for a five-star rating. Matlab Homework Help (https://www.matlabassignmentexperts.com/matlab-experts.html) is also available on the same websites that offer assistance in Statistics. And sometimes, the providers are the same ones that offer homework help in other disciplines. For example, I worked with an expert who used to provide both Economics Assignment Help (https://www.economicshomeworkhelper.com/microeconomics-assignment/) and C++ Assignment Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/cpp-assignment/). While he rendered me Economics Homework Help (https://www.economicshomeworkhelper.com/), I could see other students' reviews praising his Matlab Assignment Help (https://www.matlabassignmentexperts.com/).

Since I started using Statistics Assignment Help (https://www.statisticsassignmentexperts.com/) online, I've experienced an abrupt change from failure to success on my academic profile. I was lucky to find a reliable Statistics Homework Help (https://www.statisticshomeworkhelper.com/) provider on my first attempt, and that's a story worth telling, especially given the huge number of scammers currently available online. The same expert was proficient in Matlab, so he also rendered me Matlab Homework Help (https://www.matlabassignmentexperts.com/matlab-experts.html). I liked his assistance because he never failed me. His grades elevated my hopes to graduate with one of the best grades in my class, and his Matlab Assignment Help (https://www.matlabassignmentexperts.com/) was on another level. After noticing my success, my friends asked me to connect them with the expert of he could help them find a reliable Math Homework Help (https://www.mathsassignmenthelp.com/) expert. They were tired of always meeting swindlers masquerading as proficient Java Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/java-assignment/) specialists. The expert indeed found them an experienced Master's holder, who proved very useful. Meanwhile, I think it's time students stopped suffering in silence. There are a lot of experts that can dish out assignment help in various courses online. I know about people getting Programming Coursework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/coursework-uk/), Economics Homework Help (https://www.economicshomeworkhelper.com/), and more. The good news is that their prices are always very affordable

Nowadays, various programming experts have made learning highly accessible by offering programming academic services online. Programming Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/)is very common, and I've used it myself. I've been servedC Assignment Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/c-assignment/) and C++ Assignment Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/cpp-assignment/)on various platforms online. However, some of the self-proclaimed programmers are scammers, some of whom I've fallen into their traps. For example, I lost several dollars to a fraudster on a fake platform (which was closed) last year in the name of availing Java Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/java-assignment/). Later, I noticed that the fraudster had conned several other people in the same way that he did to me. Meanwhile, there are several genuine programming experts online. All you have to do is to be keen on whoever you choose to be your expert. Check to ensure that most of the expert's client feedback is genuine and positive. Also, pay close attention to the negative reviews that often cite the true picture of the expert. Meanwhile, I have a recommendation for a good website where you can get almost all sorts of Computer Science Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/computer-science-assignment/). I know the website for perfect SPSS, R, and Python Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/python-assignment/). Hit my inbox and I'll help you.

I'm a beneficiary of Programming Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/) online. I've received C++ Assignment Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/cpp-assignment/) from various experts severally. I've also enjoyed C Assignment Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/c-assignment/) from both Ph.D. and Master's degree holders from various parts of the globe. While I've also fallen prey to a few scammers, I often consider it as part of the thorny journey towards academic excellence. Throughout my experience, I've realized that there are more cheats in Python Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/python-assignment/) than any other programming language. It's most likely due to the high amounts that students are always willing to pay for the assistance. Python hasn't as many experts as other programming languages, so demand is always higher than supply. Students should also be very careful with Java Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/java-assignment/) experts. There's a good number of them that are liars, too. Meanwhile, I've noticed that there's an increasing number of experts in Computer Science. When I started the course back in 2016, there were limited Computer Science Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/computer-science-assignment/) experts to ask for help compared to now. Meanwhile, I think online Assignment Help is good, as long as you find a trustworthy provider.

Statistics Homework Help (https://www.statisticshomeworkhelper.com/) has never been better with the right expert at the center of it all. I recently hired a genuine Master's degree holder to provide me with Statistics Assignment Help (https://www.statisticsassignmentexperts.com/), and the results were amazing. I only missed marks as a result of skipping some steps in building the solution, and not as a result of wrong answers. The expert was also renowned for rendering Matlab Homework Help (https://www.matlabassignmentexperts.com/matlab-experts.html)/Matlab Assignment Help (https://www.matlabassignmentexperts.com/) to students across the globe. On the website that I met him, there are also C++ Assignment Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/cpp-assignment/), Economics Assignment Help (https://www.economicshomeworkhelper.com/microeconomics-assignment/), and Programming Coursework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/coursework-uk/). I've seen several Ph.D. Java Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/java-assignment/) and Economics Homework Help (https://www.economicshomeworkhelper.com/) experts on the platform, too. They seem trustworthy since the website is a trusted one for Statistics and Math Homework Help (https://www.mathsassignmenthelp.com/).

While it's a good source of knowledge and top-notch grades, online Programming Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/) also has a lot of disadvantages. The first disadvantage is failing to get the assistance you're looking for in the first place. Several dishonest individuals lie to be experts only to make away with your cash. I've seen many people conned in the name of getting C Assignment Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/c-assignment/) and C++ Assignment Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/cpp-assignment/). Others have also lost several dollars for Java Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/java-assignment/). This happens because it's very difficult to spot the difference between fake programmers and real ones online. For instance, since Python experts are often paid higher rates than most other programmers, scammers pretend to be adept Python Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/python-assignment/) experts to rob unsuspecting clients of more money. This is the same thing happening in Computer Science. There are very few Computer Science Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/computer-science-assignment/) specialists that are genuine.

Some of the common courses for which students seek help with their assignments online include Statistics, Mathematics, Economics, and Programming. In statistics, students type keywords like Statistics Assignment Help (https://www.statisticsassignmentexperts.com/) and Statistics Homework Help (https://www.statisticshomeworkhelper.com/) to find the right results on the search engine results pages. However, the search isn't as simple as typing the right keywords and getting the right service. You have to do deeper research into any service that you find. There are innumerable cons online, so you have to be extremely keen. Under statistics, one may also look for Matlab Homework Help (https://www.matlabassignmentexperts.com/matlab-experts.html) or Matlab Assignment Help (https://www.matlabassignmentexperts.com/) to get assistance with his/her data analysis problems. However, the assistance isn't only limited to students, as some of those who get it are professionals in various companies and enthusiasts. 
There are also various experts offering Economics Assignment Help (https://www.economicshomeworkhelper.com/microeconomics-assignment/) or Economics Homework Help (https://www.economicshomeworkhelper.com/) online. The experts range from Bachelor's degree holders to Ph.D. professors (who are rare). Mathematicians can also get help online by typing the keyword in the same pattern, "Math Assignment Help (https://www.mathsassignmenthelp.com/experts/)" or "Math Homework Help (https://www.mathsassignmenthelp.com/)." There are also several Java Homework Help (https://www.programminghomeworkhelp.com/java-assignment/) experts online. While a good percentage of them are fraudsters, a bit of research into their profiles can help you discover whether or not they're sincere. Always check if the website on which the expert is working has been in the industry for a long time. Websites with only a few months into the business are very suspicious.
