    Normal PC setup and start up process. Nothing fancy or unusual. Two Drives C & E. Usage for both is < 50%. No partitions. No errors. Have turned off Windows Defender and Malwarebytes.


    Multiple attempts. Same error message. Any suggestions? Thanks.

  2. We can't tell if your PC has enough space to continue installing Windows 10

    These posts were over a year ago. I would have thought that the problem would be fixed by now, but apparently not.

    I have been running Windows 10 (upgraded from 8.1) on my machine for quite a while.

    Windows Upgrade Assistant told me I did not have the latest version and should update.

    I followed the procedure, it (apparently) did the update and started Windows 10 Setup which then checked for updates.

    It then checked that everything was ready at which point I got this same message.

    "We can't tell if your PC has enough space to continue installing Windows 10. Try restarting Setup."

    I have 72GB free space. I am not running Raid, though the motherboard is capable of it.

    What does it need to check at this point that was not checked when the update was started?

    If you cannot fix the problem, at least get this message changed to be more informative.

    Say what space it thinks it needs, what space it thinks I have, what error code if any.

    Also provide a button to restart the Setup, otherwise I can only go back to restarting the Upgrade !

    Each time I get a failure, there is a tool WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab

    available on the Windows 10 site that finds a problem with Windows 10 Update and fixes it, but

    I do not know why it keeps getting broken.

    I hope this might help to resolve the problem.

    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
