Drivers & Software

The driver keeps writing to disk.

When I watch a video, there's extra drive activity. When I pause the video, the drive activity stops. When I unpause, it starts again.

I booted windows into safe mode and then opened a video. There was no extra drive activity.

I uninstalled the AMD driver and then opened a video. There was no drive activity.

This tells me that AMD driver 20.1.3 and also version 16.11.5 are both writing to the disk when playing videos. How do I stop this?

I don't use relive or do streaming or anything. Is there some kind of option that will stop the driver's contact with my storage drive?

Re: The driver keeps writing to disk.

Open Resource Monitor, and look under the Disk Activity section, in it there's a column for "File". Which file is being written to when you are watching videos?

Re: The driver keeps writing to disk.

How much RAM do you have available? Also which motherboard? CPU?

Re: The driver keeps writing to disk.

I made a mistake. The driver is not writing as much as I thought it was. Thanks for replying, guys.
