It seems that my local disc C is full. 1.6 gb left. of the 28 Gb disk space. However, it is only occupied by the windows 10 version 1903. meaning that this installed windows program already occupies almost the entire disc space... All others like documents - photos and so on are on an extenal disc.
I need to run an update, and requesting a 10 GB free space.
Already used the disc clean up, but this is not sufficient... (1Gb max)
Is there any possibility to create enough space in order to run the update.
iff so, place explain in very simple language how to do.
i did install a extra micro SD card 32 Gb (D:), and an external a disc space of 1Tb.
Go to start, settings, system, storage, and select temporary files. Check everything. Make sure you do not have anything in DOWNLOADS that you need.
Then, run the cleanup. Note - this could take a while.
Yes, that stick has only 32gb of storage, which means you need to manage the storage. In addition to using the cleanup I provided above, you may need to take a closer look at what you have installed, and what is stored in your profile(s).
Not sure I understand. If it says you have 6.4gb to clean up, and you select everything, then it should clean it up. 6.4gb is a lot, and it will take a lot of time on the stick.
Oh, I understand now. It needs a certain amount of space to even do the cleanup.
Ok. Rather than selecting all checkboxes, do them one at a time. If it fails on one, then go to the next. Maybe we can free up some space that will allow it to have more workspace.
Managing space on such a small disk is a challenge. If you cannot find what is consuming the space, you may have no choice except to do a clean install. I know that is drastic.
On my stick with 32gb storage, I have 19gb free. I only use it for netflix and have no apps installed.
Go to c:\users and right-click on your profile and select properties. Let it take its time to sum up and provide you with the amount of storage being consumed by your profile.
Well, something is taking up space. You may want to try this tool to see if you can find where the culprit(s) are:
The above link is provided for your convenience. There may be other tools available.
Using this tool, take time to explore the various folders to see how much space is being consumed.
Also, do you have checkpoints turned on? If so, how much space are you allowing for checkpoitns?
No,, it just gives you the tree size.
It sounds like you have some corruption.
My recommendation is to do a clean install of Windows 10, 1909, deleting all partitions, and let Windows 10 create a clean environment.
My process to maximize the cleanup is as follows:
- If offered on the initial scene, click on Clean up system files.
- Click on the More Options tab.
- In the System Restore and Shadow Copies section, click on Cleanup... and then the Delete button offered.
- Click on the Disk Cleanup tab.
- In the Files to delete: box, place a checkmark beside all* categories offered [*only one exception: if you use languages other than english, do not check Language Resource Files].
- Click on Ok and then the Delete Files button offered.
Hope this helps,
