Im using:

MOTHERBOARD - MSI H510M-A PRO (MS-7D22)
GPU - GIGABYTE RTX 3050
CPU - i5-10400F
CPU Cooler - be quiet pure rock slim 2
RAM - 16gb DDR4 ram
SSD - CT1000BX500SSD1 (Crucial BX500 1TB)
PSU - XP600R7 600W
OS - WINDOWS 11

I did:

chkdisk c:
chkdisk c: /f
chkdisk c: /f /r
c disk error checking
disabled telemetry
disabled windows notifications
disabled sysmain (superfetch)
disabled scheduled optimization
enabled high performance battery plan
updated windows
updated variuos intel drivers
updated BIOS

NOTE: the ssd temps are good, the remaining life is 94% (open hardware monitor)
NOTE: the ssd is not failing it's new and i checked it multiple times with some software which name i don't remember
NOTE: this is the only drive on the system, the drive usage on idle is like 0-1% also I have 284GB free space of 930GB

NOTE: I previously solved this by updating my BIOS (2 weeks ago), but now it's the same.

Is Crucial BX500 1TB the only drive in the system?
Do you have any other drives there?

Check Disk Usage with Resource Monitor instead
(switch to disk tab, order by column total and show screenshot)
Yes its the only drive

Resource monitor:


this happens when launching any program or even opening 2 firefox tabs
 
Can you make Disk Activity section visible too?
It would show, what files are being accessed.

These processes are currently making most disk activity:
msmpeng.exe - windows defender,​
uplaywebcore.exe, upc.exe - ubisoft launcher.​
Can't really tell, what system process is doing. Disk activity section would show that.

this is when opening discord for example (i tried opening a game "WorldBox" it was fine, then i closed it and tried discord for the disk usage spike up)
