    Windows 10, 64 bit

    On my Windows 10 it was called "CDPUserSvc_1cb43e" and "Connected Devices Platform User Service_1cb43e" what was odd according to process explorer it had used I/O read bytes of 151 Gb! It's doing some kind of reading, and a lot, I just stopped it.

    For a comparsion, Google Chrome was second with 11 Gb of reads (which is plausible). But what is CDPUserSvc reading, whole disk?

    Connected devices platform is related to the time line, theirs a folder in app data /local called connected devices platform which stores the activity cache, if ever you wanna rebuild the timeline you can stop the service, erase the files in that directory, restart the service and rebuild the index.
