    Windows 10 update larger than available memory


    I just got a notice that I had a Windows10 Update available, and it installed the "Windows 10 Update Assistant" on the desktop. When I run it, I get the error "You'll Need to Free Up Some Disk Space on your PC, 16gb required". The problem is I don't HAVE 16gb. This is a small laptop with no HD, so All I have after cleaning off everything non essential is 14gb.

    So what do I do? Can I never upgrade my Windows 10?

  2. can not open a file "memory is full" urgent help

    The reason is simple ........

    The Application(PDF READER) that tries to open the file is not getting the necessary MEMORY (R A M) to execute.

    AND,

    the PDF document is LARGER than the program can handle and execute. The larger file size for the PDF reader may be 1 or 2 MegaByte (MB) and the ability to execute the file depends on the available RAM memory.

    So........

    tell me about your opinion and results>>>

    N85: Memory cards larger than 8GB?

    If you do it this way, don't forget to enable the display of hidden and system items on your computer.

    Windows 10 update larger than available memory

    I had that message with a Tablet but was able to plug a MicroSD card into a slot on the edge of it, gave me an additional 64GB storage and there was a prompt in the update to use it for temporary storage. It's the same card used by cellphones for photo storage, etc.
