If you look at what svchost does it could be proper for it to get a lot of bytes attributed to it's process.
As it stands it's an interesting data point but I read about the HDD failure and can't tell if the original popup is fixed.
I have a samsung Q330 laptop.
After few years of use I suddenly got this pop-up massage:
And in my tasklist parameters I noticed that the "I/O other bytes" value of one of my svchost.exe is extremely high:
After trying to fix things for some days, I got convinced that my HD just died of old age or some kind of physical damage.
So I bought a new WesternDigital 500GB HD. After mounting it and reinstalling windows and all drivers - I STILL HAVE A CRAZY "I/O other bytes" VALUE IN ONE OF MY SVCHOST.EXE PROCESSES!
WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM???
This is driving me crazy and im afraid it could hard my new hard disk physically....
Some test I just ran -
Run IObit and AVASt full scan and found nothing.
Run chkdsk CMD commend: All the results are perfect and I get a "Windows has checked the file system and found no problems" message.
Run S.M.A.R.T test: The new HDD health is 100%. these are the result parameters-
