How do I upgrade my Hard drive. No room on it to update Window 10 download.

HP notebook Model # 14t-amooo
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I bought my HP notebook 1 1/2 years ago. Never had a problem when Windows 10 did a download. Now Notebook can not do any downloads says not enough space on hard drive. I do not save any pictures or documents have a separate hard drive to save pictures to. I would like any information to be able to get ahold of someone or to able to upgrade my hard drive. Thanks for any information.

Hi

 

Initially...

 

F11 is usuall disabled when space is low.

Reduce the Swap File, remove redundant Restore Points.


Normally Windows does updates and keeps these for at 30 days locally, and does a purge every so often of old/expired updates.

Piriform Ccleaner is worth a mention.

Microsoft mention this (I use it on W10).... Task Scheduler

The StartComponentCleanup task was created in Windows 8 to regularly clean up components automatically when the system is not in use. This task is set to run automatically when triggered by the operating system. When run automatically, the task will wait at least 30 days after an updated component has been installed before uninstalling the previous versions of the component.

If you choose to run this task, the task will have a 1 hour timeout and may not completely clean up all files.

Run the StartComponentCleanup task in Task Scheduler to clean up and compress components

If Task Scheduler is not open, start the Task Scheduler. For more information, see Start Task Scheduler.

Expand the console tree and navigate to Task Scheduler Library\Microsoft\Windows\Servicing\StartComponentCleanup.

Under Selected Item, click Run

NB: The StartComponentCleanup task can also be started from the command line:
schtasks.exe /Run /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\Servicing\StartComponentCleanup"

You cannot just delete WinSXS as it's needed for long term stabilty, but for a re-install I would certainly look to trim it as much as possible.
