One other thing you might consider is to off load all your storage to a remote drive. Have your main box loaded up with only what you absolutely have to have to make it run, and put all your production storage on a remote drive. Yes, it's another device on your desk, but with the current USB and other device connectivity speeds today it's almost seamless. THEN, if your storage fails (and it's backed up), all you have to do is replace your storage, and your main compute is still good to go. 'High speed / Low drag'.

In our world of multi-million dollar high-density compute systems there is literally zero data stored on our compute devices. All they do is compute. All the storage, even active, is vectored off to giant storage arrays which are mirrored in real-time (active-active). Now this may not seem applicable, but it actually is. The point is, you want to reduce the overhead on your CPU as much as possible, and push all the other overhead off onto your storage. This way you're not spinning cycles on figuring out where to put stuff at the same time as trying to crunch production processes. It's not quite that simplistic, but that's the best analogy I can equate.

Translated to English...get an external SSD or HDD.

Just something to consider.

That's the thing.
The laptop has very little on it.
It's mostly for surfing and email.
And less sensitive stuff.

Call us crazy, but we think the laptop is not quite as secure as the desktop.
We don't even do banking on it.

So, very little to no files on it.

But, you do present a very good idea!!!
Thanks FCD!!!

The laptop often runs at 100% of the Disk for several minutes.
Not everyday, maybe once a week or so,

Then with the updates, it runs at 100% for hours, even after the updates are completed/installed.
Seems to re reading and writing something.


Check to see if you have disk defragmenter (optimize disk) set to run weekly.


Well, well!!!
So far, checked the Dell desktop with SSD, it's already set to run weekly.
