    100% Disk Space in Task Manager


    I was browsing around this forums, looking for similar issues, but I was unable to find any that could help me with my situation. Currently am running Windows 8.1 (It has been occurring in Windows 8 as well). I have 8GB of RAM, and 1 TB of Disk Space and a 1 TB backup hard drive. I have filled 350 GB already. For some reason, whenever I turn my computer back on, either from a restart, or from sleeping, I always seem to get somewhere from 97%-100% disk space used, even when nothing is running outside of the background. I have come to a possible conclusion that it is a specific process causing for this, because It randomly goes down when I begin to end some background processes. I can not seem to figure out which one, for it seems to occur while in the pause of deleting. The processes, and it occurs after a different process each time.
    Here are some photos to show what is going on:

    Disable the paging file on the partition windows is installed. You can keep one on any other partition/disk. Reboot. See if it helps.

    So I just tried this. I followed the steps of:
    How to Resize and Disable your Paging File (Virtual Memory) - YouTube (I did the last part, it messed up my desktop, then I undid it)
    I both, set the minimum disk space to 10000, max to 12000 MB, and I disabled it completely. Both times didn't work.my

    I discovered that my 'Disk Space' and applications only crash when the wifi is enabled. Although untested, I do not think this issue remains with a wired connection. However, my Task Manager resumes to lag and turn unresponsive, even without wifi enabled.
