    Hi Guys,

    I have a small problem where my new laptop(under 1 1/2 months old) is showing high disk usage a lot of the time)

    You can see the screenshot I have attached, the largest process is using only 1.7mb/s, this is extremely slow for a HDD isn't it?

    If you have any ideas on how to fix this, please let me know :)

    Thanks

    -Ryuk-

    are you attaching it using the go advanced button instead of the quick reply
