eMMC Storage isn't Enough! Can I upgrade?

HP Recommended
X360 11-AB011DX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I only have a few applications on this device, I cleaned up the temp files, upgrade files, etc., and only have 3 GB or so left.

 

It's really annoying that they made the storage so small.

 

Is there a way to upgrade it?

You can not replace the eMMC storage but you may be able to add a hdd to it.  The service Manual shows other models having this ability.

It's funny, I just ran a huge Windows update, and I now have over 8 GB of empty storage space!

I guess it downloaded the update and once it completed it deleted it self.

I had to delete the windows.old directory.  But there is an EXTRA 4 GB availlable now.

Windows.old is the old version of Windows.  This is always created when a major update was completed. there is a breif 10 day period to go back to that old version of WIndows.

Of course it's the old version of Windows.  That's why the directory is called...  wait for it!  Windows.old!

 

That wasn't my point.  My point was that there is a lot more space available now than there was before the update happened.
