    Complete Windows reset but one HDD is still full


    Hello, I just did a complete reset of my laptop I chose the option where you remove all files and not just Windows files. As I have two drives, a SSD C: on which Windows was and is installed, and a HDD D:, on which I previously had Program files, personal files etc. I was expecting the reset to completely clean up my computer, but my D: did not go through any change. Moreover, my previous session's Documents folder was located on the D: drive, so now I still have my previous session's files, but I can't access it Windows is refusing the access. I would prefer this drive to be emptied

    :)

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Complete Windows reset but one HDD is still full :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    Hi Johan,

    It is possible that your
    HDD was unreadable
    causing the error message to appear. We recommend that you perform these troubleshooting steps and check if there are any changes:


    • Shutdown
      your
      PC.

    • Unhooked
      the
      HDD
      and
      turn on
      your
      PC.

    • Reconnect
      your
      HDD
      and
      restart
      your
      PC.

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you contact your
    laptop/computer's manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.
