I've had that same issue. The problem for me was I had Steam installed and I was in the Steam Beta Program. If you have Steam installed and you're in the beta program, try leaving the program. Another thing you could try is opening task manager and clicking "Disk" in the "Processes" tab, then ending the task at the top of the list. Otherwise, there could be an issue with your disk.

It depends on a number of factors, such as running tasks, the disk speed, and the SATA port speed.

 

Can you provide more details about your machine, such as the model?

Could it be a RAM issue as well?

Has anyone figured this out?

I've got a clean install where I'm having 100% disk utilization and it started showing symptoms while setting up a fresh install of Windows 10.

I've installed latest chipset and SATA drivers, updated firmware I the motherboard and the scan verified the latest firmware on the disk extreme pro 240GB ssd. I've disabled prefetch and a number of other services that many peoples reported was their problem. I disabled the alerts that many reported was their issue. I've done everything short of registry edits and a reinstall on another ssd to figure out the issue.

Anyone else have any other ideas? It's a fresh install straight from Microsoft store. Windows 10 professional.

If you open the task manager, are you able to sort by disk utilization? Which process is using the highest amount of I/O?

That's the thing, I've done that and there aren't any processes that are utilizing the disk like that. I haven't been able to track it down. I've heard that there are issues with installs that weren't formatted. I just took a un-allocated space and installed.

I'm suspicious if this didn't properly initialize something on the ssd like a write back function or some kind of feedback control.

I'm going to attempt a new install and format a partition this time.

If it persists following a reinstall, I would suggest starting a new thread and posting as much detail as possible

I conducted a reinstall and it functioned like normal.  Then after a few reboots, I found that the problem came back.  I've installed on a different SSD now, and I don't have the problem, but I'm going to see if the problem resurfaces as I figure out my RAID controller issues and do a couple restarts.
