Heavy disk activity
I can't use Vivaldi on Windows anymore. As soon as it is started, heavy disk activity goes on. Even after closing Vivaldi, 2 processes stay active, still causing heavy disk IO. After killing the 2 remaining Vivaldi processes the disk is quiet again. This behavior is reproducible and only occurs on Windows (here 7), no issues on Linux.
I'm not sure if it helps, but try this:
- Close Vivaldi (all processes)
- Delete these files in your Vivaldi profile:
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Top Sites %LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default\Top Sites-journal ```3) Start Vivaldi I know that these 2 files caused crazy HDD usage in some releases or after update. If it won't help try to use this tool -> [Process Monitor](https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/processmonitor.aspx). You can use it to check what files are read/write while there's huge usage.
Thanks a lot.
Indeed these files where shown in resource monitor with heavy IO.
I deleted them.
They came right back after restart, but all is quiet now.
I'll have an eye on it.
You're welcome, and I'm glad it helped.
After delete, new files are recreated and works just fine most of the time. It is common problem from time to time I guess, that some inconsistencies appear. So it's first thing I check when I see that something is "killing" my SSD.
