Applications sometimes "stuck" if Everything uses Multi-HDD

Applications sometimes "stuck" if Everything uses several physical disks (MULTI HDD). High disk load and less response to other the application.

Was Everything indexing during this high disk load? or was another application making many changes to your file system, causing Everything to read these changes and slow your system.

Please check the smart data on your drives, make sure there is no sector reallocation or media errors.
sector reallocation or media errors would cause system slowness.

When Everything reads a change in the USN journal, it will also lookup that file in the MFT for size and date modified information.
I suspect this is causing the high IO issue you are experiencing.

I've added to my TODO list: After reading a change from the USN Journal, update size and date information in the background.
I'll also review the option to disable updating the size and date information after reading a change from the USN Journal.

Do you have size and date modified information indexing enabled?

Probably all my settings are default after installation. Do not change anything.
However, MFT and Journal files are very large.
