Visual studio crashing with one particular project


I am having a problem with my ionic 4 project. Visual studio crashes whenever I open it.

I am able to enter the project and maybe do a little bit of work, then will eventually crash. Sometimes I can even run the app on chrome, where it works fine. It seems editing on vs Code is where it freezes.

In the task manager what is really strange is, the disk is at 100%. But I cannot see any programs on the computer that are occupying a lot of space.

Has anyone experienced something similar??? Can anyone help me troubleshoot this??
