It seems when Windows system protection is running in the background, it uses the hard disk very intensively. Is there a setting I can change so the disk use is not so high?

For anyone who doesn't know, Windows System Protection is the feature that automatically backs up the system to allow for system restores:

System protection is a feature that allows you to undo unwanted system changes by being able to do a System Restore. System Restore enables users, in the event of a problem, to restore their computers to a previous state (restore point) without losing personal data files.

If you follow that link, you should find instructions to completely disable Windows System Protection, if that's something that you want to do.

It's also possible that some other issue is causing the slowdown. It is often a good idea to:

  • Update your system and then reset the computer, to make sure everything is up to date.
  • You might try using Windows 10's built in Performance Troubleshooter (Control Panel --> Troubleshooter --> System and Security --> System Maintenence) to see if there is some other issue that the system can detect.

If that doesn't work, you can try this approach:

Also, are you asking about hard disk space or CPU usage? If this is about drive space, note that there is no real benefit to having unused drive space. In the overwhelming majority of cases, a computer with 70% of its hard drive full will operate as effectively as one with 20% of its hard drive full. If you're concerned that the drive space is slowing down your computer, it probably isn't (although some other factor may be), unless you're sitting at like 97%+ drive space used.
