steam downloads really slow and is showing something about disk usage
I just bought a new pc with a msi gtx 960 and a intel i5 but my downloads i arround 350kbps.
Also under total mb is something about disk usage and that says around 2 mbps.
Can i get rid of the disk usage so my pc downloads faster?

or anything that makes it downloads faster, region changing doesnt help

The disk uage statistics to not affect downloads at all. All it does is show you when the disk is being used as a result of the game download.

Remember, correlation =/= causation.

~ Well it seems that it is your slow internet connection ~

yeah i ques so
What internet speed do you have? or try going to Steam settings then go to downloads and check what your bandwidth limit is set to.

The choke point will be your internet, not the PC.
hmm that can't be right if you are downloading at 400kbs then you must have at least 4mb connection speed try restarting your router and check your router page if you can to see your true connection speed

Mine disc usage showing about 5mb/s. It takes more than 1 hour to write 250 mb file on disc. I'm wondering if something is wrong with it.I Got asus I7 gtx 860m(4gb) 16gb ram. 2,5 ghz. Also ark is working on extreme low grafic wich in my opinion it should work on ultra.
Tnx for any infrmation you guys could give me.
well i think that disk usage has something to do with downloading when i downloaded something i had 2.6MB/s disk usage and 2.6MB/s download speed and it's weird because i usually have 1.2MB/s download speed maximum
