Would a hard drive fix my problem?

HP Recommended

So I recently purchased a used Hp stream. On my last laptop I played sims but the laptop started having loading issues so i got a new laptop. Now I'm trying to re-download everything but I don't seem to have enough space and the person i was buying from said they deleted as much stuff as they could to free up the laptop. Should I continue to try to free up space, and if i should, how? And what files are safe to delete. I also wonder if getting a hard drive would help my problem (i don't know that much about technology), would i be able to store everything on it? I would also like to mention I only need about 400 mb of space to free up so I don't know if i would want to spend so much money on just 400 mb or if it would be better in the long run? thanks.

Hi:

 

The drive on your PC is integrated into the motherboard, so that is not an option.

 

I would clean install W10...see my solution at the discussion below...

I don't know if you can run programs from the USB flash drive, but I would say probably not.

 

You can probably access data stored on the flash drive though, or you can use a SD card.
