The computer is busy because Windows 10 is doing one of its many updates. Currently (2018) the only easy workaround is : let it run some hours while you are away…

Had this problem on a number of computers running Windows 10.

Current (March 2019) Windows 10 Updates fixes most of this high drive activity.

Spy-Bot’s Anti-Beacon software will block most of MicroSoft’s snoopy telemetry software which also causes much drive activity.
