Increase storage space on a Omen X Compact Desktop

HP Recommended
Omen X Compact Desktop (Model # OMEN P1000-025se

Can storage space be increased on a Omen X Compact Desktop (Model # OMEN P1000-025se)? My computer is out of space and cannot even complete a Windows update (e.g., says it needs 0.05MB of space which I don't have). I have an external hard drive that I have saved files to. But it seems updates and some downloads have to go on the computer's hard-drive. If storage can be increased, how does HP recommend doing this? Thank you so much for the help!

Hello @INmom 

 

Have you ever deleted all the temporary files on the system, including Temp installation files?

Here is a link to some of the things Microsoft recommends to clean up their system...

Go to the part for "Free up space with Disk Cleanup" and read it. Then type Disk Cleanup in the Search bar and run it as an Administrator...

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/free-up-drive-space-in-windows-10-85529ccb-c365-490d-b54...

 

You might have to connect a USB external drive and transfer any personal files over also (documents, photos) if Disk Cleanup isn't enough.

 

Finally, if you have a lot of programs, games, etc and need more space, you will have to up grade that little 250GB NVMe SSD to a larger one. I recommend at least 500GB.

Any good name brand will work. Example...

Samsung...

Sabrent...

 

Let me know if you have other questions.
