    office update and disk space cleaning


    Today I updated my office 2019 and C: drive space shrunk by 500 mb. Is it normal?
    Where the office update files are downloaded and how they are cleaned after update?
    I did disk cleanup. Still space is not recovered.

    :)

  2. Windows Update “insufficient disk space” even after disk clean up.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing low disk space issue on your PC while trying to update Windows. For further clarity on the issue, please respond to the questions below.



    1. What is the make and model of the PC?
    2. How much free space do you have on the PC?
    3. How are you trying to update to the latest version of Windows?


    Usually, to install a new feature update of Windows your PC should have at least 10GB of free space available on the hard drive.



    I would suggest you to refer the articles
    Free up space for Windows 10 updates
    and
    Troubleshoot problems updating Windows 10
    to see if it helps.



    Note: Please make sure you take a backup of your data before proceeding with the steps mentioned in the articles.



    In addition, you may want to refer section How will I know if I don’t have enough free disk space to install updates? from the article

  3. hard disk space

    Hello,

    Taking into consideration that the free space is shrinking fast, it is possible that your system is creating restore points. To
    delete restore points except for the recent one, simply follow the steps below:

    • From the Cortana search box, type Disk Cleanup and click on the first result.
    • Once the Disk Cleanup window appears, select the
      More Options
      tab.
    • Under the System Restore and Shadow Copies column, click on the
      Clean up... button.

    Once done with the steps, see if your disk space has expanded.

    If you have further questions, please let us know.
