Look at the Task Manager Resource Monitor to see if you can tell what Processes are causing high disk activity.
Resource Monitor is a button the the Task Manager / Performance tab.

Here's an example of the window I'm talking about:

Look at the Disk tab that I highlighted in my screen print - I think it's easier to use for this.
You are looking at the Overview tab.

Sort by the Total (B/sec) so the highest numbers are at the top of the list.
To sort, click on the Total (B/sec) column heading.
