    All five updates installed OK, however disk cleanup reports nothing of note to clean, even after a restart. Usually there is the 1Gb+ of Windows Update files to churn through... but not today.

    One way to do this is simply to open the picture (in whatever app or program you choose such as paint etc) and then resave it under a new name such as 'mypicture_onedrive' and then move the copy over.

    Have you tried setting a fixed wireless channel on your Hub rather than letting the hub decide? This can really help with wi-fi issues although 75 to 1Mb is pretty drastic.
