Hello @Oilyg 
you have two options
your computer has a very small SSD and a hard drive
You must try to move the maximum to the hard drive
Just try this

Otherwise it is mentioned:

128 GB TLC Solid State

  • Size: 128 GB
  • Interface: SATA
  • Type: TLC Solid State
  • Width: 2.5 in (6.35 cm)

check if it is really a simple SATA SSD, and replace it with a larger one if necessary

@Prométhée 

It is so sad that documentation does not explain it is not an automatic feature.  Storage must be re-assigned.  Far too many inquiries on the same topic.🙄😫

Indeed @wb2001 
but I don't know what saddens me the most ..
the fact that there are no explanations, documents, for the user ..
That computers could have an SSD that was way too small was fine with w98 / xp, but with w10 pfff ..
Or that it is not precisely automatic, with this type of configuration, I think that it could be done, since anyway it is modifiable
I am sure that many users have a second hard drive, which is not being used as it should.
