The models with 32GB drive space do dot leave much after Windows installation & updates.

 

What you can try to do is some aggressive cleanup with the Windows Disk cleanup tool.

Assuming that your system is running ok at the moment, you can get rid of Windows update installation files and old restore points.

Do as follows:

 

Hit WinKey+R

Type cleanmgr and hit Enter

Select the C: drive

Select Clean up system files

Select C: again and hit OK

Tick all the boxes that give meaningful savings (exclude your downloads if you need them)

Select OK

After the first pass select More options

Select Cleanup System Restore and Shadow Copies

 

This should give you quite a bit free space

.

 

People are using their precious remaining lifetime to try and help, so it is common courtesy to come back and tell what the solution eventually was even if you found it elsewhere. It is for the benefit of everyone.
