Low storage on brand new laptop - daily optimizing to free up space

HP Stream My Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Every day I receive a message that my storage is low, it is consistently falling below 1.0 GB without me downloading anything.  Can't understand why it is dangerously low without adding anything other than a printer since I purchased the laptop.  Why when I go to Disk Management it shows I have 260 MB free on Disk 0 partition 1?  Is there a way to make that free space available?  Every time I click on it, all the options are gray.

@SuzanneTH 

 

Did you read its specs before opening your wallet/bag ? I don't know what it is because you did not supply what is it model/product BUT I can say 99% sure it is a machine with ONLY has 32GB of eMMC storage. 

 

>>> Is there a way to make that free space available?

That is system reserved partition, without it system won't run

 

Can you return it and buy a proper one ? Otherwise you WILL get more problem down the line. Machine is not designed as normal notebooks if you wish more storage to keep user data/files you can add 256GB SD (or microSD) card to its card slot.

 

Regards.

@SuzanneTH 

You're basically stuck with what you have.

However, here are some things you can do to recover some of the disk space:

Also, the community Win10 Forums has the following suggestions:

In addition, I have found the utility Cleanmgr+ to have LOTS of options for removing Windows junk, including log files. I use it practically every day. You can get it from here: https://www.getclone.app/download/category/11-cleanmgr

Also, there is a freeware app known as Wise Disk Cleaner. I use it every day to get rid of junk files: https://www.wisecleaner.com/wise-disk-cleaner.html
