Constantly writing to hard drive issue

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all

I can't seem to figure this one out and was hoping someone can help.

My hard drive light is constantly on as if something is writing to the drive. It even prevents me from rebooting or shutting down as it hangs at the logging off/shutting down screen.

I've checked the the disk tab under Resource Monitor and something is defiantly using my drives as you can see from the activity spikes in the screenshot.



Any ideas?

Your screenshot points to automatic windows updates.

Change it to never check automatically and only check on manual execution.

And the behaviour you are seeing should change.

Let us know how that works. And I suggest updating anything that needs it.
