Running out of space in less than one hour on BRAND NEW NOTEBOOK! HELP!

About 3-4 Hrs ago, I have boughten the HP 11.6" Stream Notebook. I turned it on and let it load + Upgrade to the latest version of Winodws 10. I had no though that it would of taken up all the space. I was about to transfer some pictures to the Picture folder, when suddenly, it said I am running out of space. I was in disbelief! How can it less than 3 hrs, I run out of space! Can someone please help me? Any advice on how can I have more space. I honestly didnt even transfer any pictures of music or absolutely any files. How can I have more space? Is there a way to add more space? I'm in disbelief...anyone please let me know what I can do. I have unistalled some apps I don't really use. Any more advice? Tips please!

Unfortunately, the Streamonly has a single 32GB SSD -- and as you have found out, that fills quickly when Windows 10 does any updates.

 

Here is some information on a command you can use that will clean up some of the Windows Update files:  http://winaero.com/blog/how-to-clean-up-winsxs-folder-in-windows-10/

 

Did you just do Windows Updates, or did you Upgrade the Stream from Win8x to Win10?

Thank you very much for your help! I pretty much did the Windows Update. I honestly didn't think it would fill up the memory so fast. I was and still am in disbelief. But everything is quite working now. Thank you.
