high disk usage in windows8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a 100% disk usage after every notebook start - cold or warm - for about 10-15 minutes.

    I've found a question for windows 10 with a solution to remove some option is setting, but since the versions are different in this (Settings) didn't even try it.

    Thanks for assistance

    What is the disk usage after the computer run a few time? Will it return to a normal statue?

    Please follow the suggestions to trouble shoot the problem:

    1.Run chkdsk /f in command prompt as administrator. here

    2.Perform a clean boot.how 

    3. Open Task Manager to see which process account for the high disk usage.

    If the problem still exist, please use windows performance toolkit to capture the process when the scenario is reproduced. Then help us collect the etl file to the network drive and share the link here.
