@Ron3660 Welcome to HP Community!

I have a few steps that should help resolve the issue:

 

Step 1: Use Chrome Task Manager

While in Google Chrome, press Shift + Esc to load the Chrome Task Manager. Chrome Task Manager shows the list of open web pages and Chrome Extensions that are running. For each entry, the CPU and memory footprint is displayed.
 

chrome high disk usage - chrome task manager
 

If you find one webpage or pages under a particular website using more CPU or Memory, terminate those pages.
It’s possible that those pages may be using heavy javascript files and stylesheets.

 

Step 2: Disable Unwanted Chrome Extensions

See if browsing the same set of websites using Google Incognito (private browsing) mode helps. This mode loads Chrome without extensions and saved cookies are not utilized. If everything works fine in Incognito mode, then open Extensions settings page (chrome://extensions/) and disable 1st half of the extensions. Close Google Chrome, reopen it and observe if the problem repeats.

If the problem recurs, disable the 2nd half of the extensions, close and reopen Chrome. In case that solves the problem, you’ll need to narrow down which particular extension in that 2nd half is causing the problem and eliminate the offending extension.

 

Step 3: Reset Google Chrome (If the above doesn't help)

And if the issue persists, while all other applications work, however, google chrome is taking up the disk usage, please contact google support for further assistance.

These steps did not fix the problem.

 

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

@Ron3660 As requested previously, please try with another browser, and if the issue doesn't appear on the other browser, contact google support for further assistance.
