This service is disabled in Windows 10 Home 1511, Windows 10 Pro 1511, Windows 10 Education 1511, Windows 10 Enterprise 1511.

Controversies surrounding the surrounding CDP service

There have been many user stories about the service that have consumed too much disk space and led to slow performance on some computers. This raises many suspicions, as there is no apparent reason for the existence of the service. It is also known that the service causes many errors in the Windows event log. One of these errors was “Error 7023”, which is automatically recorded in the event log and has no significant effect on the performance of the system or any other application.
