    Is this a freshly installed OS?Maybe Windows is still "setting" things up,compressing and indexing is always disk intensive.Do you have "search"and "indexing" features enabled?
    If not,have you scanned your system with at least two different AV's?

    I installed windows 1 month ago. I don't know what you mean if i have 'search' and 'index' features enabled. I don't have any antivirus except windows defender

    We need to pinpoint,what exactly under the process "system" is using your disk.It could be the Windows search feature,searching over and over a corrupt file for example.
    Would you feel comfortable disabling the search service,via control panel,administrative tools,services,double click on search,stop the service and setting it to disabled?

    Try superfetch service,see how the system behaves,you can always revert to its default or previous state,you get the idea,try any suspicious service,try disabling system restore,its not easy finding the culprit.Do you have any 3rd party backup application installed?
    While at it,give Malwarebytes a shot,keep it to assist the inbuilt Defender.
