    Microsoft Store - Cannot download due to lack of space


    OS: Windows 10 Pro, App : State of Decay 2


    My C:\ drive is a 128 GB SSD.

    By default, the Windows Store tries to download to C:\Program Files\WindowsApps


    It failed due to lack of space. The C:\ drive has 10 GB and has plenty of space for the OS.


    I keep my programs and data separate to my OS partition, because, well, it's common sense. I've also relocated the Users directory to the Data partition as well during the OS install using the Microsoft recommended method.


    Before anyone suggests 200 ways to free up space on my C:\ drive, that's not going to happen. There isn't enough space and I'm not have 'data' bloating the OS partition.


    I can see that I can change the location of the Windows App downloads. I did that. However, this only changes the download locations for subsequent Microsoft Store downloads.


    My download is *still* trying to download to the original location.


    I can see that you can Move apps, *however* this can only be done for Installed Apps. Mine is still trying to download.


    Please advise.

    :)

    Laptop will not update due to lack of disk space

    Hp laptop 32GB drive, cannot down load updates cannot restore due to lack of memory.

    Removed all programs and apps except those preloaded.

    Tried to remove windows 7 but is not listed in disk clean up.

    Everything I try I get message that I need additional 8gb memory and to delete programs and apps. There is nothing to remove to get additional space.

    I currently have 24.2 gb used out of 29.1gb available.

    How do I get out off this mess and update to a newer vesion of windows 10

    Computer unable to update Windows 10 1607 due to lack of space

    Laptop is unable to download the latest update for Windows 10 due to lack of file space. There's only around 6 GB of free space and it seems the update is about 5GB.

    Is there any way to work around this? Like an update with a smaller file size, or if possible, download the update in an external hard drive?

    Microsoft Store - Cannot download due to lack of space

    Unable to delete maps due to lack of space?!?!?!?

    So I decided to delete my downloaded maps to make space.

    My phone (HTC 8X) has 73mb free so I decided to delete a map that is 187mb.



    Steps:

    Long click on the map

    get an option to delete,

    select delete

    app displays a prompt to confirm that I want to delete ... I click yes



    Phone responds with "Not enough room" !!!!!!!! seriously???

    (How crazy is this? ... I need room to delete a map????)



    To show that this is truly an insane defect the complete error message reads:

    "Not enough room. You need at least 335.7 MB of free space on your phone to get this map. Free up some space and try again".



    Clearly they are reusing the error message text from when you try to download a map and there is not enough room. but I am trying to delete the map.



    Any suggestions?



    If I have to create space in order to delete map I think I will just laugh myself silly Microsoft Store - Cannot download due to lack of space :)
