Re: Super slow , here we go again !!

Hi ya'all, looked at those downloads for "NOT " downloading W 10, its a bit complicated for me. Now just an update, was gone most of the day, not on here much BUT I keep checking. Looked again at ( CSmiley Happy drive (expanded every line) , so far I do not see "$Windows BT", maybe by changing the setting ( removing the checkmark) as instructed, it stopped?  Looked at Glasswire too, seems to stay steady, also system control ctr. data is holding steady not going down within 10 minutes, overall PC is slow, like it was before but its usable . Having some  thunder storms coming thru so I will sign off. Have a nice Memorial Weekend if I don't come on here to complain. I feel like you are "family" LOL... learning a lot  from you guys, thanks. ♥

Windows by default hides this directory, here is a screenshot describing how to unhide it

Well, assuming its already ... in total downloaded, it will just download again unless you have run GWX control panel.

Gwalk,

Would the size of that folder/file reflect if the upgrade has already been downloaded, or is the actual upgrade downloaded to a different area, or maybe even multiple areas with multiple files?

Run the GWX or Never10 and I believe they both remove the folder also if not I would just leave it based on how much free space you have, otherwise you can run disk cleanup and select clean system files
