    FWIW....

    My lappy ( Surface Pro 3 -SSD- i5) goes a bit nuts with the I/O after startup. Always has, any Win version. 99.9999% of the time it's this process. MS loves to keep you synced. It will go on and on for 20-30 minutes and settle down. Next time, check Task Manager (if you can ) and see what this is doing.

    Hi, the first thing I note is your low transfer rate- 10MB/s or so.

    There have been several reports of 100% usage with low transfer rate, and if you search the internet you'll find references to this with other version of Windows too- not just Win 10.

    It's really hard to resolve.

    If you could post a screenshot of your task manager as asked above, that would be useful.

    I was having the same problem and Task Manager was no help in trying to see what was causing the problem. Even though it was showing 100% disk usage non of the process were showing high usage. I solved the high disk usage on my computer by changing the Power Plan to High Performance.

    That's one thing people have tried (in the threads I quoted and on the internet). But I feel the real underlying problem has not been identified.

    Hi,
    For a main installation drive it is
    No telling how much data is on it I missed that part but win-10 in general only takes up about 25gb's
    I personally wouldn't use such a large drive
    2tb would be best fop only data and a 7200rpm one at that
    Not sure what the rpm is on the one you have traditionally most are only 5400rpm.
