You are watching: Why does my hard drive run all the time
Hey everyone, newly my difficult drive has been constantly running at 100% while I am simply at the home display. Task manager mirrors that "system and also compressed memory" is what is running so high. The problem will last about 15 minutes, reprimary ok for much less than 5 minutes, and also then continue on. As you can imagine while this is happening everything I try to carry out on the COMPUTER is incredibly slow because of this. I have run multiple antiviroffers to view if it was maybe a virus but have actually had no luck. I am running Windows 10 if that helps. Any ideas would be great. Thanks!

Hey tbelow.If it"s not a virus it might be some sort of problem with the drive, or a different kind of software application trouble, perhaps an OS one. First, you need to backup your necessary data if you haven"t done it currently, just to be on the safe side. After that I"d advise you to downpack the HDD manufacturer"s diagnostic tool and also run the tests so that you can either confirm or ascendancy out a possible worry through the HDD. You might also offer it a go with a various SATA port and also various cables, to watch if the exact same thing happens.Check if you have actually available updates for your OS and also provide it a go, to watch if that fixes points up. You can likewise attempt disabling some OS solutions, which have been attached to high disk intake sometimes, services like: BITS (Background Intelligent Transfer Service), Superfetch, Prefetch and Windows search, simply to check out if any of them is the reason for the problem.Hope that helps. Please let me understand how it goes.Boogieman_WD
