Guaranteed it's Telemetry/.NET Optimization/Windows Defender.

Microsoft simply gave up on older PCs for Windows 10, especially those without SSDs. Windows 10 is designed especially for connected standby devices (i.e. tablets), which can run maintenance tasks while the screen is off, much like a smartphone. Since that condition never happens on a desktop or laptop PC, all that shit ends up running while you use the PC. Windows 8 had a feature that could have remedied this, by waking up the computer from hibernation, but they got rid of that after ``people'' (control freaks) complained about their computers waking up.

It's not a glitch. The way Windows 10 measures drive activity is how long it takes the drive to respond.
Mechanical drives have long response times, so it goes to 100% usage really easily if it isn't accessing sequential data, because it is having to wait on I/O.
It's a pretty fair way of measuring usage. I'm sure some people will complain but using percentage of the drive's theoretical throughput isn't really fair either when you're wondering why your computer is acting slow to respond and the drive usage only shows 5%, but it's having to seek all over the fucking drive for this one application that's blocking I/O of other processes.

RAM in general doesn't discriminate when it stores valuable data versus no active data. all operating systems work on the principal that it allocates 'active' data to completely unused RAM. When data that used to be in RAM but is not 'active' anymore then the OS will check first wether the regions in RAM have already been reallocated. If not it can be returned which means saving read-write cycles on both memory and RAM.
