I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Open Admin Tools, Resource Monitor (Desktop not Metro) and click on the Disk tab. This will tell you what is using the Disk and should then shed light on your issue. Please let us know.
