This has nothing to do with disk space, you can see how much of that you're using up in File Explorer if you click on "This PC" and look at what shows up.


What's represented here is disk input/output (write/read).  It is not at all unusual to have spikes in disk usage, particularly by system processes when everything else is idle.   Have you ever just walked away from the machine for a while and checked it later?   It should not do this constantly, but there can be significant spikes that last anywhere from a few minutes to longer where there is high disk I/O.


I can say, though, that I more typically see this with the Antimalware Service, not Service Host.  See these DuckDuckGo search results for a range of things you might consider in light of what's causing the issue.

As britechguy said, that isn't disk space, it is disk usage.


How much RAM do you have in the machine?  If you have 4GB of RAM that would be a contributing factor.


Is this constant, or mainly when you turn the machine on?


The HP Active Health is supposed to be a scheduled task.  This is something you could disable if you wanted and that might help.
