    Disk 100% Used Issue, post Windows 10 Update...


    Hi, After a recent update this month (July) to my Windows 10, my HP Laptops Disk Usage is regularly at 100%, and my laptop is much slower than usual! I gave this a week or so after the update before deciding it was an issue and not going to sort itself out.. The disk usage is primarily being used by 'Service Host: Windows Update', which made me think it was the recent update that was causing the issue. I'll attach a screenshot from today. My Windows version is: Windows 10, 21H1 (build 19043.1110). Thanks! Hamish.

    :)
