Hard disk usage is at 100% after dual-boot

I have a Lenovo laptop running Windows 10. I think about a week ago, I dual-booted the machine with Linux. But when I checked my settings in Windows, it says that I'm at 100% in disk usage all of the time. That can't be possible, can it? But when it's running Linux, there are no performance issues. Any suggestions?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Do you mean disk utilization or disk (storage) usage? Two different things. Assuming the former, this falls into the growing category of Windows 10 weirdness that I keep witnessing. Perhaps it’s a device driver? Something you installed in Windows recently. There are many ways to troubleshoot this but one of the best tools is Process Explorer – take that for a spin for starters and see if you can dig in further.

    If you hard disk is partitioned, check them under Linux and see what the true usage is. Like Kevin mentioned Win10 has some very weird things happening lately... Got to love their QA department...

    You can open service of Windows 10 (services.msc) and check what services are running. You can disable or temporarily stop services which is not related to windows/system. Also open msconfig from run and click Services tab while click the Hide all Microsoft services and deselect whatever is not necessary. Then click Startup tab, and deselect the Startup Item that are not necessary now. Also check whether there are 3rd party tools are installed, if not necessary just uninstall them.
