  1. Huge windows 11 laptop storage issue


    I need to free up space on my laptop. It's maxed out at 256/256 GB, showing that the apps are taking up 160 GB of storage. However, settings only find 141 apps most came on the computer and only 2 take up more than a gigabyte of space. The 2 in question are Google Play Games which gives an error when I try to uninstall it, but that's irrelevant to the question at 2.33 GB and Minecraft, at 1.55 GB. It's mathematically impossible for the apps to take up 160 GB of space if there are only 141 of them and 2 that take up over a gigabyte less than 3. What's going on? Are there any hidden apps I'm

    :)

    Windows 10 Home will not boot or restart with USB Storage Spaces pool drives attached

    Hi George,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.


    • Did you make any changes in BIOS?

    • Are you getting any error message?
    I suggest you to update Storage controller drivers and check if it helps.

    Steps 1:


    • Press Windows key + X.

    • Select Device manager.

    • Expand Storage controller.

    • Right click on the driver and Update the drivers.


    Steps 2: Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with hardware and devices. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue
    is with device. Refer these steps:


    • Press Windows key +X, select Control panel.

    • Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Hardware and devices troubleshooter.


    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help

    AMD FX OC'ers Club

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
