    Speccy works fine on my Dell 9550. As does Ultimate Windows Tweaker 4.1.1.

    Only problem I had yesterday after the install of 1607 was that at initial boot I got only a 1/4 screen in the upper left area. All sorts of attempts to fix did not work - but for some reason all is well this morning boots to full screen. I really hate UNEXPANIED problems.

    Right click the Taskbar and launch Taskmanager. Select StartUp and Look if there are two Onedrive lines present. If so disable one of them.

    I also use Speccy and it survived fine through the upgrade....Had a very smooth one yesterday, by the way....it's running great and all apps and data were carried over from my original install..even all the settings remained the same...

When I had Windows 8.1, I disabled it. I then found that when I first upgraded to Windows 10, Fast Startup was re-enabled, so I disabled it again. Now I find that the Anniversary Update has yet again re-enabled Fast Startup, meaning that, yet again, I have to disable it.

    Microsoft, will you please leave this setting alone if I decide to disable it, particularly due to having a dual boot system. I know what I'm doing, I know what I'm losing out on, and it's annoying to find such a setting put back to the way YOU want it instead of the way that I want it.

    Sorry, had to get that off my chest. *grumble ... grumble*
    Thanks for the info @Gort
    I like mine off so PendingFileRename's get done, I found it better for system stability too. I have SSD's and the boot time difference is minimal, at least on my PCs.

    Well Speccy is working here, at least so far.

    It WAS removing it in the past updates, but not on our last 2 I believe.

    Please explain if I sound ignorant on this opinion or if my conclusion seems baseless.
    I have a 128 GB SSD, which formats to 118 GB. With Windows alone, I'm sitting at 59 GB. Add in my monstrous game Battlefield 4 for an additional 55 GB and we're dead out of space - which MUST be on my SSD (because I want it fast). Program Files and x86 add an additional 4 GB and 3 GB (so far) and the users folders 231 GB.

    Now, you can see that I have a very reasonable need to rearrange my storage. 360 GB won't fit into 118 GB and I still don't have everything installed yet as I'm waiting for Windows to calm down post upgrade from 7. Of course, I could go buy a 1 TB SSD, but in reality, I prefer for the OS and MY data / programs to be separated.

    @Kari - Thank you. Looks like I need to play a shuffle game with Windows.

    You don't have to move whole programs folder to another drive. During program's/game installation choose to install it on secondary drive. If you change just drive letter, program will make it's default folder on it leaving only small amount of files on system disk.
