100% Disk Usage - Happening at specific times daily

  1. #11

    So here's an interesting thing I have seen, and I'm marking this as solved for now. All the changes I made had varying degrees of impact but never fully resolved the issue. A week ago I upgraded Windows 8 to 8.1, and have not experienced a single instance of 100% disk usage. I cannot confirm fully that MS did some kind of fix in the upgrade, but for me its been positive in regards to performance.
