EDIT: PROBLEM SOLVED
How it got solved??
After debugging the files and writing permissions for a while, I have seen that “Brave Auto Contribute” and “Brave Rewards” were causing this problem. I have disabled all BAT related activity and auto contribution and now I do not have any problem with HDD usage time. Tho, I can’t use Brave rewards anymore
Description of the issue:
Brave Causing 100% Disk Usage
System and Brave Specs
Version : 0.57.18 Chromium: 71.0.3578.80 (Official Build) (64-bit)
OS : Windows 10
Brave uses Hard Disk actively and writes data to some directory
How long does it last?
It keeps writing data until Brave is completely closed from Task Manager. It doesn’t matter if I am browsing Youtube or Twitter or any other website. Even closing all websites and just opening new tab page causes same disk usage.
Things I have tried
Disabling extensions, removing extensions, disabling Brave Shields, restarting computer, restarting Brave
Hello everyone. I have been happily using Brave browser for a long time now and other than couple websites, I did not have any problem with Brave. However, it was until today.
Today I was browsing Youtube, then wanted to play some games and my game lagged for more than 45 seconds. Since I have a high end CPU and GPU, I thought it could be about my HDD. As I have opened the Task Manager, I have seen that my disk activity time was 100%. I have tried checking what was causing the issue and I’ve found that Brave browser was actively using the disk, for writing data.
I tried getting more details and I found that “brave.exe” has write activity on directory “C:$LogFile (NTFS Volume Log)”. I first thought it could be a problem related to my hard drive but after checking it for over 6 hours, I made sure it was the Brave.
Now I don’t know how to fix that problem. I’ve tried many things yet no solution.
EDIT : Here is a screenshot of the problem
On the right, I have sorted the applications in descending order according to their writing.
Oku (B/sn) stands for Read (B/s)
Yaz (B/sn) stands for Write (B/s)
Toplam (B/sn) stands for Total (B/s)
