@Anjiekids Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you are getting low on the storage error message and you are unable to connect the printer to the computer.


Please perform the below steps and check.


Way 1: Run Disk Cleanup


Windows includes a built-in tool that enables users to delete temporary files and other unimportant data to free out disk space. Follow the steps below:


Step 1. Right-click on the low disk space drive in Window Explorer and select "Properties".

Step 2. Click the Disk Cleanup button in the disk properties window.

Step 3. A new window comes out. Select the types of files to be deleted and click OK. These files include temporary files, log files, files in your recycle bin, and other unimportant files. Disk Cleanup will show users how much space they can obtain by deleting the selected files.

Step 4. By pressing "Clean up system files", users can click the "More Options" button and use the "Clean up" button under "System Restore and Shadow Copies" to delete the system restore data. This button deletes all but the most recent restore point, so please ensure your computer is working properly before using it -after that create another system restore point.


Way 2: Extend Partition on the Same Disk


If there is enough free space on the rest partitions of the same disk, the extending partition should be straight forward. When it comes to extending partition, Windows Disk Management utility is stereotyped in the way it extends partition, because it always presents users with grey/unavailable options that disable users to use this feature.


Why extend volume greyed out in Windows Disk Management? In other words, extend volume only works when:

  • The partition to be extended should be NTFS partition or RAW partition;
  • If the partition to be extended is a primary partition, there must be unallocated space adjacent and after it;
  • If the partition to be extended is a logical partition, there must be free space adjacent and after it.

Fro connecting the printer to the computer, please refer to the below links.
