  1. Need Disk Space for Update: delete candycrush and bubblewitch3saga files


    I have a Cloudbook 32 gig C drive and need to get additional space to install the current update. I have deleted all data and apps other than Chrome, and have no disk mgmt files left to delete. I do have in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps about 2 gigs of candycrush and bubblewitch files, even though I have deleted these applications, and they do not show in Settings Applictions. Even though I am an administrator, I cannot delete of change the properties of these files.


    I still need 2 gigs to install the update. Games/Apps has 6 gigs, but I have access to less than 100 megs of that storage.

    :)

    Deleted Windows.old, not enough disk space freed


    1. Did you empty the recycle bin ? If not, empty it.
    2. Delete the contents under: C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
      Those are downloaded Windows Updates files and already installed.
    3. Open Admin command, copy and paste the line below then run:
      Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
      This should remove all the no longer used by component store. Will take a while to run.

    Windows 10 Updates & Upgrades error: There wasn't enough space on my hard drive

    Hi Samantha,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I can imagine the inconvenience you have experienced. I will definitely help you with this.

    Since you have a less amount of space in your hard disk, I suggest you to free up some disk space by running disk cleanup on your system.

    Here are the steps:


    • To delete temporary files:

      • Search for Disk cleanup from the taskbar and select it from the list of results.

      • Under Files to delete, select the file types to get rid of. To get a description of the file type, select it.

      • Select OK.

    • If you need to free up more space, you can also delete system files:

      • In Disk cleanup, select Clean up system files.

      • Select the file types to get rid of. To get a description of the file type, select it.

      • Select OK.
    Once you perform the above steps, install the Windows updates manually and check.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Hit
    Windows Key and type

    2. Type
    Windows Updates

    3. Click on
    Windows Updates

    4. Click on
    Check for updates and install the latest windows updates.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
