    What is going on, serious disk reading every time after bootup Win 10?


    Since I have th FCU, every time I boot up my PC right afterwards my PC keeps on using my HDD HARDCORE on 100% for minutes on end... It keeps on rattling like it's doing... something... but WHAT? Yes, I have a dutch version of Win 10 Pro.

    So what in tarrrrrnation is going on here? (after 20 minutes it just stops...) And it's eating my CPU to the fullest... (3,23Ghz)

    You are on a spinning hard drive? If so that seems normal behaviour.

    Yeah but for 20 minutes or longer? Sounds fishy to me...

    Well, right after booting up the system it keeps on going doing stuff for 20 minutes and then it just settled being all calm and stuff. Ok, some sound afterwards but that's fine...

    How old is the laptop, is it out of warrantee? Does the machine have a door to swap out the drive? If so it might be worth considering an SSD upgrade.

    No it's just from this year, custom pc build, desktop tower pc. Win 10 pro, 64 bit. And no, it does not have a fancy swap door.

    That isn't normal. And no thinking of considering getting an SSD just because of a 20 minute HDD activity is no excuse.
