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


    I have a tablet pc loaded with Windows 10 version 1511.



    I cannot use Windows Update to change to latest version because it responds “insufficient disk space”, even though I have done everything possible to clear the “C” drive of unnecessary files etc.



    I understand that in the past when the “insufficient disk space” message was received the user was then invited to specify a different drive as supplementary disk space. This invitation does not appear now.



    Is there any way I can use a usb flash drive to temporarily provide more disk space for the update process?

    :)

  2. insufficient disk space to update windows 10


    My laptop keeps trying to update Windows 10 and failing, giving me an error that says there is insufficient disk space, which surprises me because the computer is relatively new and I don't use it that much. I follow the instructions to clean up disk space, but this does not help - I always get the same error when it tries again to update windows 10.

    Disk bloat in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    Is it my imagination, or does the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update consume an additional 20-30GB of disk space over the previous Creators Update release? Unfortunately, I didn't log my disk usage before the upgrade, but now my C: drive has 56GB of stuff, and I know it wasn't anywhere near that full before. I've run "Disk Cleanup -> Clean up system files" and selected everything on the list, including remove previous version of Windows. I also emptied my Recycle Bin, my Temp folder, \Windows\Temp folder, and \Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder. Finally, I ran Wise Disk Cleaner to delete assorted application garbage.

    Has anyone else noticed the bloat in Fall Creators Update?
