    Been there, done that. Tried all possible tweaks. All reinstallations were from newest installers. Nothing helps.

    Slight increase in performance, i.e., slightly faster post boot system stabilisation after deleting HP printer useless extra software. Noted that Chrome is a huge resources guzzler. But that does not explain why system, once it is stabilized, behaves perfectly.

    Please understand: computer performance is perfect, _but only after a 20-30 stabilisation period_ which is an unaccepable long time, and impedes normal work because all reactoons of the machine, keyboard, mouse, app launches etc. are reduced to a crawl.

    Note that stabilisation involves disk activity, which drips from 100% to 50 only after 10 minutes, then to 1-2% only after 10-25 minutes.

    Then, apart from operation, momentarily calling for higher disk activity, everything remains on that low percentage.

    Note also that this problem only appeared after 1903 update ( which could only be done after a totally clean update).

    No offered solution or tweak has helped up to now.

    So there you are.

    You need to explore the problem of slow disk transfer by researching the relevant threads.

    For comparison, try your PC with an older build of Windows and see what tranfer rate you experience then.

    To do that, you could use Kyhi's live boot disk (older Win 10 build), or put in a spare disk as your only system disk and install Win 10 build 1809.

    If you experience a significantly higher transfer rate with an older Windows build you know
    - either your PC is not compatible with 1903
    - you need a technical fix to improve the transfer rate.

    Up to you to do the test. So there you are.

    Two startup operations explains your 20-30 stabilization period.
    - Windows update searches for new updates.
    - Google drive synchronization uses resources after startup. But that is normal as it it comparing the files on the cloud with the one on the computer.

    Reply to thread 22 Dalchina: My last thread #21 was not addressed to you. Please consider this matter as closed and solved (for you). Thank you.

    Reply to thread 23 Megahertz: Thank you very much for your kind following of this matter.
    I realize that Google Drive Sync gobbles up much resources and energy. I will take the matter up directly with the Google people as a Google One member.
    As for the Windows updates, I will examine the matter. But they have been paused...

    Thanks again,

    Hi Megahertz,

    Please reread what I wrote carefully - and also what your colleague wrote. I was not at all unkind to Dalchina. That person had let me know in a last message that my computer was perhaps not compatible with 1903, while suggesting of course an operation that had been done long ago. I was simply reminding that person that the thread was solved, because after some tweaking I had seen seen some bettering of performance. And that I had answered to you because you had sent me some extra practical information not implying again that I had not read threads carefully.

    Like I now answer to you directly, concerning the matter raised in your message, about Google Backup and Sync. After some experimentation (exiting the app being the most "drastic"), it appears clearly that, apart from, to a lesser degree, Chrome itself, it's that utility which gobbles up a lot of resources, including disk activity - I guess from the moment the computer has booted up - and even if the utility has been paused. It's only by completely quitting it that disk utility falls back to zero, or very low percentage when there is an activity.

    So, two solutions: either find another manner to back up my files safely, or ask the people at Google (I am an Google One member) to see if nothing can be done to that resources guzzling utility.

    But please, do not lose any more of your undoubtedly precious time on this thread. The same goes for your colleague. It is indeed solved as far as it goes. Many thanks to you both.
