I need to make my C drive larger so I can download/install Windows Update

HP Pavilion Desktop 595-p0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to download Windows 10 Update.  My C drive doesn't have enough room to accommodate the upgrade.  I have absolutely no idea how to make my C drive larger.

Yes, I have done that.  But it only freed up a few MBs.  I need at a minimum 8GB.  I'm guessing that I need to make the C partiiion bigger, but I have absolutely no idea how to do that.

Hi

Well with the lack of details from your-self I can only hazard guess.

SKU:  would help.

 

One of these?

https://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/hp-pavilion-595-p0000-desktop-pc-series/19390512

 

with   2   Hard drives

 
512 GB PCIe NVMe TLC M.2 Solid State           AND A 
1 TB  Interface: SATA  Size: 1 TB   Speed: 7200 RPM

 

So what / which is the C:  ????

 

ELSE

Hi

So HDD 1 has over 800 GB of free space?

 

So, personally not knowing what you are trying to  achieve, I have my Web Browsers set to a download area called Downloads

on my large storage drive.

 

So if you got Chrome/Safari/Edge whatever to download everything there and move any download areas on C: you may get the result you want.

 

Directory of S:\

30/11/2019 12:38 <DIR> DOCandODTetc
06/12/2019 19:36 <DIR> Download
06/12/2019 19:35 <DIR> Downloads
0 File(s) 0 bytes

 

AND the first thing to download there would be Paragon Partition Manager.

Appreciated.  I deleted Corel and Adobe.  That created enough room to download the Windows update.  Once that was done, I had Corel Support Staff work with me in re-installing the Corel software, and I was able to download/iinstall the Adobe software myself with no issues.
