    windows 10 reads backup drive

    Hello, when I play music on media player win 10 reads my backup drive and accesses the internet this slows the computer and media player locks up. Is win 10 storing on the cloud?

    Hi I'll check

    Sounds likely, I'll check if the drive activity stops when media player downloads stop Cheers

    In both cases, use your task manager to identify what's responsible for the activity.

    yeah it doesnt download, just the track listings and album covers if it can but does take a while if your music collection is large
