Clicking "disk" to watch what is taking up the most tough drive usage does not work. I am not shown any kind of meaningful data.

There is meant to be lots of Google Chrome processes, as Chrome is expected to run as multiple procedures, to fill websites faster. Even if you only have actually 1 tab open, it does this.

No it does not go dvery own. It remains the same at 99%
