    When installing Windows 10, One Drive Setup takes forever!


    OK so, I've just got the latest Windows 10 20H2 ISO and testing on VM machine, 2 CPU cores and SSD HD, enough for testing.


    Installed OK so all going good but yet again, I've seen the OneDriveSetup.exe in "Task Manager" -> "Details" killing all CPU cores and taking longer to sort itself out than it took to actually install Windows 10 itself, I had the issue on previous other builds so looked for it again and it still happens.


    What is it doing? Compiling from source slowly? Can I recommend having an option when installing so we can opt out of installing One Drive rather than it being stuffed on without our consent? I also want to know why it takes so long to install, it really shouldn't so something is clearly not right with it. I can install Office in 1-2 mins and it's a lot larger in size as a comparison.


    Rant over :

    :)
