Omen C: is too small and I can't do the most basic things

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi all,

 

I'm having some problems trying to some of the most simple tasks thanks to the C: being so small in memory.

By default, all programs I have installed seem to go on the C:.

I have tried changing the system settings so that all programs install on the much larger 😧 but when I apply this, it reverts back to C:.  this is very unproductive, and is starting to hinder my workload.

 

How do I move the programs onto the 😧 to free up space on the C: so I can do my work?

 

Thanks

Welcome to HP Forums and Thanks for the post. 

 

I understand that you are facing low disk space on C drive and performance issues with your Computer. Don't worry, I will be glad to help you. 

Kudos to you for trying to change the location for installing new softwares.

Have you checked the startup items to improve the performance of your computer?

Would it be possible to provide a screenshot of the Disk management with the HDD details?

You can access disk management by doing a right-click on the Windows button.

Hello

 

Will try to assist you with this problem.

 

Can't find Omen C using HP search as an HP PC so will guess you have small SSD and large HDD.

 

Very difficult to now move program installs from C: to D:. You will have to uninstall and reinstall each program using custom install so you can direct program files to install on 😧 drive.

 

Must use custom install for new programs you install in future to keep program files off small C: drive.

 

Grzy
