  2. space in hard dist for update windows 10

    Hello ManolisTsitkanos,

    To better assist you with your concern, I'd like to know the following:

    • Confirm which build is currently installed on your device. To check, follow the steps below:
    • Press Windows key + R, then type in winver.
    • Click OK.
    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    • What is the exact error message that you're getting when performing an update?

    Meanwhile, I'd suggest following the steps in this article
    to help you free up drive space on your Windows 10 device.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Regards.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond why does microsoft have to have so much space for their updates? :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
