Disk Usage at 100%

by eedskeeheh / October 11, 2017 8:14 PM PDT

Windows 10
I think I have tried nearly everything I could.
I disabled Windows Search, Superfetch, Background Intelligence Transfer Service, DiagTrack.
I disabled MSI mode.
I expanded virtual memory.

Can someone help me?

Resource monitor/disk....use google.

Don't overlook that you may have a disk going bad.
Use chkdsk to test......see google.
