    High disk usage after upgrade to TH2.


    I just upgraded to TH2 from Win 10 Pro. I noticed that my disk usage is near 99% for the past 20 mins. It keeps fluctuatiing between 10 to 99. Normally my disk usage stays at 0. May be this might be Windows settling in after the upgrade? There was high disk usage the first time around when i upgraded from Win7.

    Leave it a few hours and it should calm down.. TH2 is an upgrade to the OS not just a patch (that is why you get the Wondows.old etc) so it is doing all the same things as it did after you upgraded from 7.

    Speaking of the windows.old folder, would it be safe to delete it? I do not think that I would want to go back to a previous build anytime in the future since I already have an ISO file of the same.

    Sure - you can delete it with disk cleanup.

    Make sure all your programs are working first - if the installer found incompatible ones they would be left in Windows.old rather than copied to the new install.
