Hi Guys, i'm using a gigabyte b450 aorus elite mobo. ryzen 5 3600, rtx 2070. i have 2 500gb ssd and 1 120 gb ssd. in my system there's always 1 ssd that spikes to 100 percent when it's not in use. At first i thought it needed formatting, then i changed the sata cable, the power sata it was connected to, i even changed the drive but there's always 1 that spikes and it's unstable for a long time. i checked the smart status of them and they are all in perfect health when they're not spiking. I've changed every variable i can think of, do you have any other suggestions? could it be drivers?

What happens if you startup and run the system with that drive disconnected? Does another disk jump to 100%?
Yeah it does, it started off on the f drive, I unplugged it then it started doing it on the D drive. I had to factory reset my PC which fixed it for the moment. It must have been a driver thing.
