Disk usage 100% on Windows 10 after restarts


Whenever I restart my Windows 10 computer, Insync starts up and begins to read/write from the disk for a long time. I’m not sure if it stops actually, I always have to close it to get other stuff done. I’ve waited up to 15 minutes but it still seems to be doing some I/O operation. This does not happen after a clean install of Insync (after waiting for it to sync everything), in fact I don’t think it happens until the 3rd or 4th restart of the computer.

Here’s what it looks like in the task manager. My machine is a Surface Book i5, with the dGPU installed. I will email my logs to the support email.


Also, when it’s doing this, no new files can be synced. I can only solve the issue by reinstalling Insync, then waiting for it to do the initial sync. Then the issue pops up a couple days later again.


will be tagging our engineer @dipesh and he will get back to you


@deckardk: How many files are present in your local Insync folder? Please check my reply on the following thread for the workaround: Scanning For Changes at Boot


The greater part of the games and projects that require the DirectX comes stuffed with the perfect DirectX form too. Along these lines, if introducing the most recent form of DirectX didn’t take care of the issue at that point introduce the rendition that accompanied your program. This will take care of the issue in light of the fact that the DirectX adaptation that accompanied your amusement installer is the one most reasonable for your diversion. https://appuals.com/100-disk-usage-windows-10/


Perhaps, this article on windows 10 100 disk usage by ValidEdge might help you out. Just give a try to method #4 and post back if it’s not resolved. So far, I know, it won’t occur again.


That’s awesome, @Jordan_Akki! Thanks for the heads up. :slight_smile:
