Hard disking running at 100% causing a very slow PC

Hi so I've had this problems for a few months. I built this computer about half a year ago and it ran absolute fine for a majority of the time but lately it's been stuttering sometimes when I play a game like Fortnite and when I check the task manager my hard disk runs at 100%. My FPS is more than 60 in all games but I lately also tried the Battlefield V Beta and it stuttered aswell, checked it again and it was my hard disk again. How do I fix this? It's a 1TB hard disk and I've got quite a few games installed, not sure if this is the problem?

Run a test on the HDD and see if it's a hardware failure. HDTune is good for this.

if that still not showing up a issue. then is some bad software setting some where. or something nasty like a virus etc.

How much free space do you have on the drive? If it is near capacity it can behave a lot like my wife when I walk in the door at 2am.

I had this once, and tried a few days worth of google suggested fixes. In the end I gave up and just wiped the drive and reinstalled win10. solved the problem at least...
