Here’s How To Fix 100% Disk Usage
So, when we talk about this issue, there are two significant culprits called Superfetch and search indexing, which causes the problem. Thankfully, you can disable both of them, and that should fix the problem.
1. Disable Superfetch
To disable Superfetch, you need to
- Open Windows Powershell as administrator
- Now type the command and press enter
net.exe stop sysmain
- Now open the task manager and see if the disk usage has reduced. Also, open and close apps to see if the performance has improved or not.
If the problem persists, you can try disabling Windows Search. Here’s how to do it.
2. Disable Search Indexing (Windows Search)
- Go to the Start menu and in the search box, type run.
- Now, in the run, type services.msc and click on okay.
- In the Services window that opens up, search for “Windows Search,” double click on it, and set the startup type as “disabled.” That’s pretty much it
