Disk Space

Hi, I followed the steps on how to gain more disk space off of the HP website, but I still don't have much. Should I get a SD card now? Or is there anymore ways tof ree up disk space? Thanks.

@Daniel_R11,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I recommend you purchase an SD card if you wish to increase the storage on the computer.

 

Please refer to the below article to free up space on the hard drive.

I got a SD Card inserted it, and everything fit and it was running smoothly. In the bottom right it even had a box labeled "Printers and Devices" and labeled my SD Card in it for evidence. However, I am trying to get train simulator 2019 onto my desktop but it still says I don't have enough space because I have not gained any space. The game is only 9,000 and something MB and I got a 64 GB SD Card. A couple of pages popped up when I inserted the SD Card, was I supposed to press something on a page that popped up? Did I skip any steps?

@Daniel_R11,

 

Is the SD card getting detected in windows explorer?

 

You need to select the SD card when installing the game on your computer.

 

Here is how it is done.

 

1. Insert an SD card, that will be your new default location for installed apps.

2. Open Settings from the Start Menu.

3. Click on System.

4. Click on Storage in the left menu. You should see your SD card or other drive listed along with your internal drive.

5. Select your SD card or other drive in the "New apps will save to" option under Save locations.

6. Click Apply.

Thank for replying! I am confused because I opened setting s from the start menu but I don't see the box that you said should be on the left. I only saw "display, devices, mouse and touchpad, typing, corners and edges, power and sleep, autoplay, disk space, and pc info. Should I press disk space because that is storage?
