My MSI Gaming Laptop which has Windows 10 has an issue where the disc usage will max out even though basic tasks like chrome are running with .1 or .2 MB/s.
I have tried scanning for malware, checking for updates, safe reboot and performing the "chkdsc.exe /r" task as an admin. Nothing was working. Then I scanned for outdated drivers and found that I have a few, as I turned off automatic updates. While I intend to fix these drivers soon, I was wondering if it is likely that this will fix my issue or if anyone else had this problem and found a solution.
Thanks.
