That's your problem right there.(why it's so slow) That drive is dying. I suggest you get your data off as soon as possible

I've got a Microsoft Community post about this already here, but I usually get better help on here.

My external hard-drive is constantly running at 100% for no reason. I have no idea what could be causing this and the fact that it's an external hard drive makes it a bit harder to solve as I'm not sure how to check what's taking it up. At idle, it stays at 0%, but if I use it, even slightly, it jumps up to 100%.

Thank you!

Because its an external hardrive and it will attempt to write things as fast as possible.

 

 

Sounds like normal HDD behavior to me

True. 100% usage time is not the end of the world. The response time is the thing what matters

Its an HDD. Response and random writes is shit anyway.

My response time is around 200-3000 ms. It goes to 0, jumps up, goes back down and repeats.

Also, I've never had this problem before (as far as I know). I had to reinstall windows for another issue and noticed that it was at 100%.

Is the only solution to get something else?

This is a problem of it's own. It's supposed to show the disk name. Not the controller. Can you download crystaldiskinfo and check what drive it is

Ah, ok. I'll need to buy something else then.

Thanks!

Funny how you pointed out the exact same problem and showed the controller as the drive name on the MS forums. If only these people stopped following their script and hire someone who actually knows about windows and hardware.....
