Windows 10: Windows 10 slow sfc not fixing!!
I ran check disk and repaired the errors now there are no errors. I am using Seagate HDD. I m thinking of doing an in place upgrade or install. Ease help me with that
If you are no longer seeing any errors with the Disk Check tool as it is more commonly referred to while still the same thing of course you will be needing a few things to tend to first! The download of the Media Center tool is one option for having a tool available to create the 10 media on the spot with as well as consider downloading and saving the Threshold 2 Update's "Windows.iso" file to a folder on the drive or on a second drive if you have more then one in use to have onhand.
Actually here the iso was mounted and not the setup.exe at the root or in the "C:\$Windows~..." either BT or WS temp install folders at the route of the Windows sub folder found here under "C:\$Windows~WS\Sources\Windows" but the sub folders for the 32bit and 64bit found under the Windows sub folder there was started up to see the 10 Installer's initial screen appear while the setup file at the root simply stalled since it wasn't while booted live but while still in Windows.
Seeing the 10 installer running from the temp install folder is how the downloads themselves work as well as the upgrade by update method since the Windows update tool simply can't restart your system and run live without Windows running. You'll notice right away in the address bar the "Sources\Windows\x64| sub folder for the 64bit files was directly accessed to run the setup.exe file manually while you will want to review the upgrade guide itself preferably as well as see the 10 media created for the November update unless that is what you saw go on depending on just when 10 was put on which if just lately following November 11th would be the present generally released not Insider Preview build but generally made public build being the six month later update for 10.
Now there are actually two upgrade guides one for generally upgrading from a previous version and the one I will point you to for seeing the repair type install. Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums
The other guide of course will be for going about downloading 10 by either the Media Creation Tool already referred to or a direct download in ISO form from the Tech Bench Program's own download page. Windows 10 ISO Download
The difference is first the Media Creation Tool is just that something you download first to have onhand as well as download to see the instant upgrade online, create the 10 usb Install Key which will need at least an 8gb flash drive to handle the 5.48gb "4 in 1" Home and Pro, 32bit and 64bit Windows.iso file downloaded and either seeing the immediate upgrade, 10 key, or even saved to a folder on the drive for later use. At the Tech Bench site you will see the two choices between the 32bit or 64bit dual edition iso instead of the 4 in 1 combination is how that goes.
With the news that the Disk Check found and corrected some disk errors that comes as no surprise from having previous seen the dual boot of 7 with the Windows 8 Customer Preview back in 2012 end up with both versions crashing as a result of disk errors on both drives attributed to the dual boot with a buggy 8! The run of the tool back then got 7 running first followed by the PC Refresh of the 8 CP which added 7 in which previously had seen 8 added into the 7 BCD store(boot configuration). The same dual OS crash once again took place only saying good bye to the 8 CP in a fast hurry!
But what you may end up doing over time is something you may want to start preparing for as well as make a good habit of is seeing things backed up from the drive either by scheduling an automatic backup. creating a full system type backup of the entire drive, or simple as you go along manual backups like downloading things twice to two separate folders or drives often two separate drives in case the OS drive fails or needs a good wipe where then you would be looking at....

You will also notice that those guides as well as a few others are what you will see in my forum signature. That was intentional so people would see those references right in front of them for easy access! The Recovery Drive for example is also a good tool using an 8gb or larger flash as long as you are able to boot live from a usb flash drive which with a number of laptops seems to be out! The Recovery Drive contains all of the live repair tools and options you would typically find in the F8 boot options menu when starting up to fix or troubleshoot some type of problem including the Start Repair and command prompt options and last resort Reset PC option.
I already did this but no use. Now I m going to do reset. Thanx for your help anyway
The reset will basically amount to a clean install anyways only without the 10 media involved. Hopefully you remembered everything you want to see backed up before proceeding with that option. But the Disk Check having found and corrected disk errors would suggest the drive is good but the problems are software for the time being at least. Let me know how that goes for you.

Many of us have told and send their problems about windows 10547 to MS and I do not understand why Microsoft keeps asking for feedback if they are not fixing stuff. I do think that the "FEEDBACK" is a waste of time or has anyone actually...
