Hi, Just got a clean install, not even got any networking setup as I wanted to play around with a Win 10 version that was stripped back and more Win 7 like than the normal offering (less MS toys and applets I have no need for). The issue is on this 'test' installation, the HD is constantly chuntering away. Defender is installed but I've disabled at least one of the check boxes I wonder if the greatly reported HD death caused by Win10 some years back is still a concern or has that become a thing of the past? (so many people reporting having drives fails soon after Win 10 installation due to constant or excessive access/use). I thought such things were rumour-mill and anti MS talk, but there are so many reports of this from people searching google that there seemed to be something in it. So, do others, especially using LSTB and considering there is no web access or any other s/w installed other than the fresh LSTB 2016 (gained and check-summed from here) have such a problem or had this issue? Thanks.
