To find out why the Disk Usage is constantly at 100%:

1. Start the Task Manager: Right click on the toolbar and select Task Manager.
2. Click the Processes tab.
3. Click on the Disk column to sort the Disk Usage in descend order.
4. Right click on the header (Disk) and select Resource Values -> Disk -> Percents
5. Find out which process has the highest percentage of Disk Usage.

If Microsoft Compatibility Telemetry is always the No 1 process, we can disable it as below:

2. Run command taskschd.msc to start the Task Scheduler.
3. On the left panel, select Microsoft -> Windows -> Application Experience
