Hi everyone, looking for a solution for my issue below. Been facing this in a couple of months.
Issue: Spikes on Disk to 100% from time to time, causing stutter in game or media playlist (1-2s freeze time).
Spec: WDC WD10EZEX-22MFCA0 Blue 1TB (game and media drive, OS is on SSD)
I’ve just bought this new drive on May 2020.
- WD check: DLGDIAG - PASS both Quick and Extended Test
|Test Option:|EXTENDED TEST|
| — | — |
|Model Number:|WDC WD10EZEX-22MFCA0|
|Unit Serial Number:|WD-WCC6Y6ZNUZNC|
|Test Time:|05:02:33, October 04, 2020|
SMART status is PASS, but below is the result:
I recorded some videos, but I think this one is the most noticable:
However, if you look at the 100% disk above, when I record the “Process” tab in task manager, I cannot see it goes 100% - so I don’t know which process causes it, below is the screenshot:
I have tried to do almost all of this tips: https://www.partitionwizard.com/partitionmagic/100-disk-usage-windows-10.html, but to no avail. I did fix #1, #4, #5 (SysMain), #9. And I don’t think moving media and games to SSD is an option from me, as my SSD is only 256GB and it is expensive to expand/replace it with a new one.
Very much appreciate it, hope the community / WD team can help!
