I’m not sure if there’s already forums, which has answers to my problematics, so please don’t feel irritated if there’s already someone, who had the answer in a another forum .
I brought my Lenovo Yoga 720-13ikb for about 8 months ago and until last month, them there wasn’t any problems. But then it suddenly became slow and laggy and I don’t know why. I had tried to update my graphic cards driver to the newest and had recently performed a fresh start via Windows Defended Security Center, but it didn’t help. Do you guys had experience the same problem or do you know what could be a possible cause?
I also have to partions on my SSD; a C drive, where Windows 10 and all my programs are and a D drive, where it seems that there’s drivers from Lenovo. Can I combine them to one my drive or should I just leave it as it is? And if I can, them how?
Then I’m also curious to figure out, how my laptop overall health is, since I’m a student, so I want it to perform as best as possible. Is there a way to figure out a laptops overall health and how the condition of my battery is?
I hope that you guys can answer my questions or at least notify me of any other topics, which have the answers to my problems .

Welcome to the Community Forums.
You can run the hadware diagnostics test using Lenovo Vantage. It also have all other features such as driver update if needed and likewise battery health.
Running the machine in safe mode would also help isolate if the performance issue is affected with running applications in the background such as synching to One drive using a microsoft account and other resources.
Update us soon as convenient.

I had run the diagnostic and I had also tried to enter safe mode, but neither steps could find nor see any issues related to that fact, that my laptop is getting slower.
I’m not sure which numbers you need, so here’s to numbers:
Machine Type Model: 81C3005TMX
Then I also have a another issue. Every time I try to install the update for “Intel Security Assist Driver for Windows”, then it said complete and restarts my laptop. But the same update keeps showing up every time I search for a new update by using Vantage or Lenovo’s website.
I appreciate that you are helping me Spidey101.

If you have slower performance in safe mode compared to ”normal” mode and same issue on regular and productivity usage, it would be best to backup your files first.
Give technical support a call so if they need to check if there is any need for BIOS update to help it but it is likely that they need to run stress test for the machine specially if you have performed reset to Windows.
D drive can be merged to the C drive via disk management but it would be better if you keep it as is for now while there is an issue persisting. Copy the d drivers folder for safe keep just in case you need the original drivers in the future.
