fix heavy disk usage on WhiteBoard when using tablet/pen input, even at idle
I have Whiteboard on several computers, and I have several tablets, (Wacom Intous L and Smart Podium display). Whenever Whiteboard is just open on any board with handwritten note or drawing it pins the disk of that computer to 100% consistently. While this doesn't seem to slow down other applications or bother me on the desktop, it makes my laptop fan run and drains battery very quickly.
I use this for teaching, so this gets very annoying when the fan on my laptop runs at maximum, while CPU is idle. the fan noise makes it through my mic to the entire meeting.
Nothing else other than running 3 VMs at the same time or using 7zip to ultra compress those VMs maked the computer fan run like that, only Whiteboard because it hits my SSD's so ******* all my computers.
Microsoft is just making us buy new disks... :(
I´m having same issue. As soon as I try to open Whiteboard, the disk usage jums to 100%. Sometimes it drops down, but many times stays at 100% and computer becomes unusable.
Windows 10 Pro, 8gb RAM memory, Wacom Intous, I only have regular hard disk (not SSD), INtel i/

Is there any update on this. The program seems to use a huge amount of resources
Yeah. It seams that Microsoft Whiteboard is destroying our SSDs' life :-(
Using Autodesk SketchBook instead until MS fix this annoying issue.
100% disk usage on a RAID0 nvme SSD usage is unacceptable for such a simple program!!!
Same here on a SSD
Me too! My Whiteboard app is constantly writing something to my SSD for no reason, even when the device is in an idle state. I am using Surface Pro 6 with the stock stylus pen.
I am seeing this too on my Surface Book 2. When the app is active, the SSD is constantly being written to at 3-4 MB/sec. If I minimise the app, the disk activity stops. I'm concerned about SSD wear and battery drain when using this app.
yes I am also seeing this and cannot use the App, this happens on W10 Pro both on X86 Intel I7 and also on the Surface Pro X WOA.
Simply opening the app is enough to set read/write of the disk to ~7Mb second.
I have same bug on my laptop Dell E6540. Please, fix this IO drain - my SSD overheats heavily!
