    Run this and post results. Doesn't do anything except analyze.

    Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStore

    In essence, you have 4 superseded packages that can be removed. No graceful way to do it humanly manually, that's why the series of commands:

    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

    Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase


    Best done in Safe Mode.

    You're going to laugh! Since I got new mobo and needed to do Win10 I haven't seen safe mode xP

    You want the easy way?

    Add Safe Mode to Desktop Context Menu in Windows 10

    That will put the option on the Desktop Context Menu and make it a one-click function. It's nice there because when you are in Safe Mode, you just click the Normal option and you're right back to regular mode.

    And there is the full blown options of all the ways to get there.

    Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10

    Resource Monitor from Windows shows exactly what and who is written to disk. I use windirstat.exe to see the complete disk usage.

    You want to clean up? Lets try this (elevated cmd box)

    1) Integrate all Windows updates (no go back): Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
    2) Remove logs and old temp stuff: Cleanmgr /sageset:0 (select all options) and then cleanmgr /sagerun:0
    3) Remove old drivers (driverstore, not used for 30 days): rundll32.exe
    c:\windows\system32\pnpclean.dll,RunDLL_PnpClean /DEVICES /DRIVERS /FILES
    4) Check whatever is running at startup: Autoruns (sysinternals)
    5) Check whatever is writing to disk during boot: Procmon (sysinternals) (Options > Enable Boot Logging !create big files!)
    6) Check if you have a temp pagefile (see SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management TempPageFile dword value 1)
