Stupi question: I am downloading something from web and at a same time I started to extract some big files on that HDD. HDD usage in task manager jump to 100%. In that scenario is it possible that something can go wrong, downloaded files can become damaged?

depends on the method used by the download server, if its TCP or UDP. Most are going to be TCP to ensure you get all your packets you are suppose to get and has file checks to ensure it came across proper and not malformed. But no, you likely wont see any issues from it.
