Continual Hard Drive Usage With No Active Downloads


Recommended Posts

I'm currently running uTorrent 3.3.1 beta 29692 on Windows 8 Pro (64-bit).

I've been running into this issue for a while now and it's now getting to the point where it's affecting the rest of my computer usage. Basically, even after stopping downloads, uTorrent will continue to use 100% of my disk for an extremely lengthy amount of time. I am unable to kill the process in the Task Manager - I can right-click and select End Task, but nothing happens. The only solution I've found is to restart my computer without properly closing uTorrent.

Here's a screenshot of the task manager and uTorrent to show that there are no active downloads (all stopped completely) and Windows showing full disk usage. In this screenshot, it's about 20 minutes since I stopped the last download, but it's been more like 30 minutes as I type this and it's still using the hard drive.

(Edit: It finally stopped. It basically took like 40 minutes for uTorrent to finish whatever it was it was doing.)
