    windows 8.1

    slow response and extensive disk work

    Maybe it's not the right forum or right category but I don't know what to do and where to get help from.
    On July 27 I upgraded from windows 7 ultimate to windows 10 pro.
    Everything went smoothly for a month or so and than the pc became slow with non-stop hard disk work.

    board: Gigabyte z-87
    cpu: i7
    ram: 8GB
    system disk: 120GB ssd (Kingston)
    programs disk: 3TB Seagate barracuda
    pc age: 3 years

    I went back with true image to August 1, cleaned with ccleaner and internal win10 cleaner, removed unnecessary services with msconfig (still working in win10), uninstalled unnecessary programs
    Things got better but I have doubts on win10 ability to upgrade from win7.
    I have a laptop with win 8.1 which I upgraded to windows 10 and it works fine.

    I repartitioned and formatted the programs disk but copying from one partition to another takes a lot of time.
    1) should I replace the programs disk
    2) should I replace the ssd (would my activated windows 10 will still be legitimate)
    3) should I reinstall windows 10 pro (where can I get it? in microsoft site I can only buy it regardless of the fact that I upgraded while it was free)
    many thanks

Windows 10 disk access seems slow
I have noticed on a clean install of Windows 10 that disk access is sometimes slower than 8.1.1 by quite a bit. I have a 960 gig Crucial SSD that used to be blazing fast. Sometimes when I click on drove C windows does a search to see what is on it....
