    I've run into many problems trying to solve my 100% disk usage problem. I found that the Superfetch service was causing the issue, and that running chkdsk /s /f could fix the problem. I tried that, and it hangs at 12%, and the computer restarts itself after about 2 hours. So that leads me to doing a sfc /scannow, which tells me it found corrupt files and was unable to fix some of them. So I was attempting to do DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, but ran into an error there.. the error 0x800f0906, the source files cannot be downloaded. I don't know what to do now. Somebody sort this out for me :confused: If logs are helpful, ask for which ones you need and I will post them.

    Seems like the disk has started failing and needs to be replaced. Try copying all your important files to another drive and perform clean install to check and see if the drive start behaving as it was previously.

    Note: Alternatively, you can also clone the existing drive to another drive of same or higher capacity.

    Good luck though!!
