HDD almost always running at 100% causing slow pc

Hi guys,

as you've read in the title I often get the problem that my hard drive runs at 100% and I notice because of my pc not responding properly or games having stutters and i'm not sure what's causing this? It's a new hard drive since i've built this computer about 3 months ago. Not sure if you guys could help me but i'd appreciate it. If you need any information let me know

Do a fresh install. I had the same issue. Nothing completely solved it other than a fresh install. But, that made it disappear entirely. Don't worry about messing with Superfetch or anything like that... it won't really help.

This did happen to me, when I had my OS and data installed on my HDD. It's a problem with the Windows 10 and can't really seem to fix it, however you can try to close superfetch in task manager, as it seemed to work for me.
