As the title says, my fairly new gaming laptop has 100% disk usage at all times, slowing down programs and windows dramatically. Task manager doesn't show specific things that take up a lot of disk usage (sometimes system takes a lot like 30MBPS), any ideas? I do have around 100GBs of free space. Here are my specs just in case.
HP Pavilion 15 cx0056wm
GTX 105Ti 4GB
i5-8300H 2.3GHz
8GB DDR4 2667GHz RAM
1TB 7200RPM HDD.

The HDD is probably the issue. Using too many programs could cause high disk usage, which is probably your problem. I would try closing any background programs. If you're set on using multiple at once, you may want to consider an external SSD.
