Moving OS from HP Noteook to SD Card

HP Recommended
HP Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

So my office machine (I hesitate to call it a computer) is a HP Notebook that has ROM storage of 32gb - 27 available after OS. It has gotten to the point where I have moved everything I could to make space on the internal drive, but I am still getting pop ups telling me I am short of system storage. Is there a way for me to to move EVERYTHING from the internal storage to the much higher capacity Sd Card and have the machine boot from the sd card instead?

Hi,

 

You MAY BE able to install new apps (but not all of them) on SD card. You can also move few (again not all) apps to SD card but you can't move pre-installed Windows (OS) to SD card.

 

Have you tried to empty the Recycle bin yet ?

 

Regards.

What is your machine ?  Please use the following instructions to find out the model/product of your machine:

When opening Disk Management, how many logical drive do you see ? For example the following image shows my loan machine  which has Disk 0 and 1. Disk 0 is the pre-installed HDD/SSD and Disk 1 is my SD card.

Disk 0 has 4 partitions C: and 😧 are accessible, others are System partitions. How big is your C: now ?
