Would not worry about it we all get it. possibly Windows looking for updates.

I would boot to a command prompt and force a CHKDSK /F

I have had this computer since W8 came out and now have w10 and in all that time disk usage hits the 100% every day mainly when starting up or something running in the background. probably updaters.

Do you mean it just happened 2 days ago or you just noticed it 2 days ago.

well from what ive seen it is not stuck at 100% atm as it random drops to around 84-95, cant see why but don't know if that helps

84-95 is to high if nothing running it should be at zero or there abouts. maybe give your security programs a run to see if they find any problems.

I've had the same problem with a laptop, again starting a couple of nights ago. Typically, the HD will show 100% active time but nothing on processes or on resource monitor. Read and write speeds fall to under 100KB/s and average response time up to 8000ms. Only thing changed recently, apart from Windows Updates was a new version of Avast, which I've removed using the Avast tool. still no improvement. Disabling windows search and superfetch haven't made any difference. Strange thing is, when it settles down it flies along.

As I said, that sounds like the file system getting corrupt.
