  1. Error: Additional Space Required to Reset Computer


    I'm trying to completely wipe my system because its performance has steadily declined over time and I suspect it's riddled with viruses, though it's still usable. I also believe said viruses are taking all the space on my computer, and I can't delete anything because everything I can delete has already been done and I still need 3.6 more gigabytes before I have enough space, and the only things I can delete are on the C:\\ drive and are questionably delectable. I'm worried anything I delete there will have damning ramifications to my computer's health and am quite hesitant to delete anything off of it more than what I've already done. I've deleted everything that I can find that's not in official Windows folders. Please help, I need this computer! If it helps, I've got Windows 10 on my HP Stream that I've had since June (it's March the next year).

    :)

    Reset: Additional free space is needed

    Hi,

    I need to reset an Omen laptop after my son took control of it. I have no password.

    When trying to reset it (removing all files), I get the following error message:

    "Additional free space is needed on the drive where Windows is installed. Clear some space and try again."

    But I cannot clear space without losing in...

    Thanks!
