check in task manager which process is using the disk, continue from there depending on the process.

Resource Monitor shows System , read and write speed = 1,200,000 + B/sec
..

also a setup.exe shows high read speed. ..

setup = Google Chrome (by System)
and System process = NT Kernel and System

if you are not installing anything I think you can kill it, you can also right click on it and choose properties to see where this file is located.
KimputerCommented:
Usually, any computer will have bursts of 100%. It's only a problem if you leave your PC alone for one hour, and it's still happening. In this case, let Google Chrome update properly. It should turn back to normal after that.
Benjamin VoglarIT ProCommented:
If this take to long simple uninstall Chrom and install it back.
mvalencia2003Author Commented:
setup.exe went away now .. but System process = NT Kernel and System .. still there - -
KimputerCommented:
Then don't look at the process, look at the actual files being touched (sort on total bytes/sec, it's in the section below it, Disk Activity).
Monitor it for a few minutes and report back on the biggest "offenders" (the full path/filename)
mvalencia2003Author Commented:
the one with high write speed is : C:\PROGRAMDATA\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue\Critical_6.3.9600_1e4cfc73174aeaef9bbe95224f89eff204313_00000000_cab_0eb32488\CbsPersist_20151010203521.log

KimputerCommented:
Try to reinitialize your Windows Updates (stop the service, delete the Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder, enable windows automatic update service again, manually tell it to search for updates). Probably going over and over it again, while there are some bits and bytes wrong. By reinitializing it, it will do a fresh check, and you will probably find that a few updates are needed. After those are installed and the server has been rebooted, your hard drive will finally be silent again.

Resource Monitor shows what is causing this , more specific .. and it is the CBS.log and CbsPersist. .. file

..??
nobusCommented:
cbs log is from running sfc  - did you do that?
i would suggest to reboot the pc and test then
if you cannnot shut down with normal mouse use - just touch the power switch momentarily - it initiates a graceful shutdown
KimputerCommented:
So you didn't try something as simple as reinitializing the Windows Updates as I asked?
mvalencia2003Author Commented:
^not yet ... (trying that next ..)
nobusCommented:
how about the rest i posted?
mvalencia2003Author Commented:
**did reboot .. didn't fix
, which is why I will try the fix regarding 'restarting update...'

I did this : http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_other-update/windows-updates-failed-want-to-delete-all-failed/2b12cd32-7dbb-4437-9c9c-e8c81fe948fa?auth=1 , , after disabling all start up items and all NON Microsoft services .. rebooted ... .. Disk space is NOT at 100 %.  will try running updates now ...

nobusCommented:
in case it returns - you can also do a system restore to a time it was ok
mvalencia2003Author Commented:
after doing the above regarding updates ... .. . it is stuck on Downloading Updates .. for 8 + hours

..??
FOXActive Directory/Exchange EngineerCommented:
I want you to download and run the system update readiness tool for your operating system.

nobusCommented:
if possible -  a system restore to a date it was ok will fix it quickly imo
mvalencia2003Author Commented:
Clearing update history and running Update Readiness tool - and also disabling all MS services and all start up services fixed installing updates.  After I re-started only services I know I needed ... restarted , , computer running good now - -

NOT at 100 % disk activity
