Windows 10 2004 - Wow faster PC - 33% max HDD use.

There have been a lot of negative press articles about the latest major feature upgrade of windows 10 - the oddly named 2004 version (or the may release) , but having done this 3 days ago i'd say its actually been great. Mostly because there now seem to be very few processes hammering the hard disk leaving it much 'free-er' to respond to the actual apps i want to run. Prior to this the disk would often hit 100% whilst seemingly doing nothing but background processes.
That seems to be the only odd thing about the new release no matter what i do i can't get the disk above 33% utilisation - i'm assuming some performance counter has got messed up and everything is scaled by a factor of 3. Other sites suggest this is when multiple disks are present - e.g. 3. But i only have 1.

I have also remotely upgraded another win10 machine, that was much harder as the graphics driver upgrade part meant it was almost impossible to control the PC with a mouse. Luckily the final reboot fixed that.

The only thing i'd say is it takes time - lots of time between 2 and 6 hours in my experience.
Good luck if you do yours, and i hope you get the speed improvements i see too.

Tried this upgrade earlier and it stopped my printer working. Have found on Microsoft site patch for this, so will try upgrade again.
