    What other specific options do I have to free up space in order to get updates.

    I have uninstalled apps, I moved folders and files to an outside deleted storage drive. Need to clear up 8 GB.


    I have done clean up now many times, emptied trash folder, but am now at a standstill.


    Also having trouble backing up on storage drive. What else is possible.

    :)

    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.
