SSD Drive Full

HP Recommended
HP All In One
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a one-year-old HP All in One desktop with a Toshiba 256GB SSD,  I am now getting Low memory warnings as the disk is full.  I have deleted everything I could, even a couple of programs I use regularly, but am only now at 750MB Free.  A significant portion of the drive space is sucked up by Windows 10 and the updates.  I  bought an external SSD drive in attempts to download and install programs to this drive, but they do not install (MS Office, Plex Media Server, etc.).  I also have two years left on my warranty, so do not want to crack open the back and have someone install a bigger drive which violates the warranty.  Any suggestions greatly appreciated?

It is difficult to give you a defined answer based on the fact that you never mentioned the exact model number.  WIN 10 and all its updates would only be 30GB, or less.  So, you might have overblown your statement ?  You can re-assign data folders to an external, but that implies the external is there at all times.  Upgrading the SSD is not a violation.  Just keep the 256GB in a box.
