    Hi Sumit


    I've got the same problem but the Media creation tool solution isn't working for me. I don't have enough disk space on my hard drive and no, I can't delete any more stuff - long story!, and I'm not getting the option to save the ISO file onto a flash drive that DOES have enough space.

    I've been trying to get this update installed for months now and it's driving me mad!!

    I would SO grateful for any further advice.

    :)

    Hello ManolisTsitkanos,

    To better assist you with your concern, I'd like to know the following:

    • Confirm which build is currently installed on your device. To check, follow the steps below:
    • Press Windows key + R, then type in winver.
    • Click OK.
    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    • What is the exact error message that you're getting when performing an update?

    Meanwhile, I'd suggest following the steps in this article
    to help you free up drive space on your Windows 10 device.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Cannot update Windows 10 due to Free space

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
