    No room on small c: drive

    I have no room to install newest windows update on my c: drive. I have another drive via a card that has 27 Gbytes available but I have no more room available on the c: drive. I have removed everything but still need to get 3,55 Gbytes. Can I remove
    some of the system files? Can I go from a 64-bit operating system to a 32-bit operating system to reduce disk space needed?

    not enough room on pc. can i use external drive?

    Hi,

    Please answer these questions to assist you better.

    • When you say 'not enough room on pc' are you referring to install Windows updates or are you trying to upgrade to Windows 10?
    • What the make and model of your computer?

    I suggest you to move your files folders and documents to an external drive so that you can make space in your PC to install updates. You may also refer the link below and perform Disk clean up to free up more space in hard drive.

    running out of room on my C drive on my PC

    Can't find the C drive in Windows 10

    All the suggestions above work, however, the easiest way to find C Drive is to type>This PC in the search box>Right click on>This PC and choose pin to taskbar. The hiding of C Drive and other Drives is another one of Microsoft's one-step forward and three-steps
    back.
