    HDD activity

    When I boot into Win Ten on my ancient laptop the HDD goes into 100% use for the first 10 to 15 minutes. Is this Windows file indexing? Does it ever stop? There is nothing on the HDD except the OS. Why does it have to R+W all the files all over again? isn't once enough?

    Thanks for your patient answers .<)

    Could be tied to the condition of your older hard drives. Factors could range from slow RPM, to heavy fragmentation and limited free space. Have you tried using the optimize function on your hard drives, in Windows 10. You have more than enough memory and your CPU should be able to handle most tasks in Windows 10.
