I have a computer that's running quite slowly today.  I'm remoting into the PC, so I can't see what's going on first hand.

After loading up taskmgr and clicking on the Performance tab, I don't see any disks.

What comes to mind for you, here?

This box is running Windows Server 2016

Run in CMD:
diskperf -y

Open in new window


Maybe you need to enable Write Caching first.
