Bootcamp WinX 100% Disk

Hi

I just installed Windows 10 on a i5 15" Macbook Pro (2014) running with 16GB of RAM

The disk performance indicator is practically always at 100%

I followed the various recommendations :
- disable system compressed memory
- adjusted Windows for best performance
- disbaled Windows Search
- disabled Superfetch (registry and services) and prefetch : both set to 0 in registry
- disablesd app notifications
- disabled 'Show me tips about Windows"
- set custom memory paging file size : 23040 MB
- Set MSISupported to 0 for StorAHCI.SYS
- Disabled Windows Defender
- Set Write permission for ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES on Skype.exe

The only other thing I can't really manage is Dropbox, which at boot up indexes files - tried pausing the indexing to see if it made any difference : not a great impact
Now that the indexing has stopped and the files are up to date - Disk is at 97% (small impovement !)

Just downloaded Diskmon and executed it, but can't make heads or tails of the data that is streaming uninterruptedly

Any ideas ?
thanks

Hi.

Start resmon (press winkey together with r, enter resmon). Look at the disk section. What file(s) leads the column "Total (B/sec)"?

Check for software updates to make sure OS X, your Mac firmware, and Boot Camp Assistant are up to date.

System, Skype, Dropbox
Removed Skype, now Dropbox is at the top

Things settle back to normal apparently once Dropbox has finished indexing its files
Therefore I have the culprit now; I guess I'll have to get used to Dropbox blocking my machine after a boot/reboot
