that issue is related to windows 8 so i would recommend you upgrading windows 8 to 8.1 through windows store and it should stop the disk usage 100% and make it normal again Smiley Happy

Click Performance. At the bottom click Open Resource monitor. Select Disk. You should see under Processes with Disk Activity the program performing disk activity. This should tell you what's causing the 100% disk activity.

it's not due to a program itself it's a known windows 8 bug so if your ussing windows 8 and not 8.1 then you should upgrade to 8.1 now to get ridd of the disk usage 100% since it's some bug in a windows process file that radomly puts disk usage at 100% for no reason :/ even microsoft knows about issue and has confirmed it's the windows itself causing it.

well then you should try making sure all updates in windows update are made as well since i think one of them solves the disk usage 100% issue since whenever my laptop has 100% and i do all windows updates it kills the 100% disk usage so it returns back to it's normal stage Smiley Happy

System sucking up disk usage can be traced to some things that I know: volume shadow copy service, indexing service, drive compression (compressed this drive to save disk space option is checked), scheduled backups and some more that I don't know. Well, for the most part Windows 8 and 8.1's indexing is the culprit since it tries to index as much of files in the system and as broad of the file types in the system. On my Windows 7, I limited indexing to my documents and start menu. Maybe you can do the same for 8/8.1. You can also limit the shadow copy size to 5 GB instead of the default 10% of the drive volume that WIndows assigns to it.

Can you post a picture of the resource monitor? The picture I have posted also is in win 8.1.1 and I'm using win 8.1.1. It's been a long time I abandoned Win 7.
