Updates :: Not Enough Disk Space Freed

Dec 12, 2015

only 9 gigabytes of disk space appear to have been freed after deleting roughly 18 gigabytes worth of old Windows files via Windows Disk Cleanup. Since the Windows.old folder still exists even after the cleanup, I decided to check the folder properties to see if the folder still took up some space, but it was completely empty, save for a few empty subfolders that I didn't have permission to delete myself. I tried Disk Cleanup a second time, but it did not give me the option to delete old Windows files.

Updates :: Can't Run Windows Updates - Keep Getting Request To Free Up Space

Feb 23, 2016

I cant seem to run MS Windows and Office auto updates (or manual).

keep getting the following message

'Updates are available, but we temporarily need 489.48 MB-489.48 MB of space to download. Remove some things you don't need right now and we'll try again.'

There is currently 10.6GB of free space on the system partition.

I have just (on Friday 20 Feb 2016) installed the Windows 10 upgrade from the MS site.

Took 6/7 attempts to finally get it done.

HDMI driver not working

Audio not working properly (keeps saying USB Audio playback default) I don't have anything plugged in. I have a realtek HD Audio installed.

Wifi is very flaky.....keeps disconnecting or reporting limited connection intermittently......15/20 times a day.

Running virgin Superhub, with 150mb pipe,

everything was working perfectly prior to the Upgrade from windows 7 sp1 to Windows 10.

Low Disk Space Message?

Aug 15, 2015

Although not a specifically Win10 message the regularity with which the message appears since updating to Win10 is beginning to annoy me. My set up has a small allocation to a recovery drive for the PC, a relic from a prior setup. I could probably delete the partition and merge it with another but for now it doesn't use up much space and happy to leave it except... Every so often I get a system message that says I have low disc space on this drive (in fact no space at all) and I want to stop the message from appearing, I know it is low on disc space and don't need to be told every half hour. how to stop it?

Also I do need to get into the depths of the OpSystem to start to understand privileges etc

Out Of Disk Space Warning In New Machine

Sep 13, 2015

Bought a 8.1 desktop last month. The store upgraded to Win10 for me. It came with a 1TB drive that now says it has 0 disk space. Something is going on. Ever since I got the first "running out the disk space" warning today, the machine has really slowed down. I opened File Explorer and sure enough, it said I had 0 space on my C drive. I cleaned up some temp files and rebooted. Now File Explorer says I have 211MB of the 1TB free instead of 0. Is this a partition issue, a Win10 upgrade bug or ?

Easily Free Up Disk Space

Sep 10, 2015

I bought an HP stream to take to class with me because it just is too ridiculous to keep carrying around my 18.4" gaming laptop. Grew up a little and decided I didn't want to be "that guy". Anyways, I upgraded the stream to Windows 10 right out of the box. After the upgrade, literally 6 gb of free disk space. Now, I realize that 32 gb is a small SSD, but there's no way Windows 10 is 26gb. And yes, I've deleted Windows.old and literally everything that's not essential to running the PC. I need some sort of utility that uninstalls everything, literally only asking me what files I want to keep, and nuking away everything else. A clean install is possible but I would rather not, since I already activated Office and set everything up how I like it.

Performance :: Hard Disk (C) Takes Up Too Much Space

Nov 21, 2015

So I have a 200 GB Hard Drive on my computer. A couple of days ago I got a notification mentioning there was not ten GB of space left. I was surprised, but I assumed I just had more on it than I thought. However, since then I have re-installed Windows for my own reasons and was surprised to find despite removing all documents and applications in the re-installation, I only had 90 GB free. This leaves 110 taken up by an unknown cause. I could not find many large files in file explorer when I searched for large files (file:gigantic).

Disk Space And Memory Usage Very High

Aug 12, 2015

I recently bought a new laptop which had Windows 8.1. After a week of having it I noticed my Disk Space near 100%. I heard this was a common problem so installed CCleaner and did disk space cleaner however none of it worked.

I then upgraded to Windows 10 as a friend said this solved the problem for him, however, since doing so either the disk space, Memory or CPU are high either one at a time or all together, regardless of what I am doing on the laptop.

The first week of having the laptop I don't believe this was a problem so I think it's something to do with an update as all games ran smoothly.

When I run a game or bring up firefox near the top is always 'system (ntoskrnl)' or a few 'service host (svchost)'. I dont believe its the games I play or firefox as like I said it was fine for the first week. It seems windows are running stuff behind the scenes.

I have done a few things that I have found on the internet but none have worked like; disable prefact and superfetch or whatever they are called. Still seeing increase in memory or disk usage whenever i load something and system or serice host are there at the top of performance or the game seems to use alot - however again the game never did this in the first week.

Performance :: Disk Usage 100% Despite Great Free Space?

Jan 20, 2016

My laptop suddenly started lagging a lot. I opened Task Manager and saw that the Disk Usage was at 100%! The only things causing it to rise are the essential Windows Programs. This causes so much lag though, that if I try to run more than 1 application at a time, nothing starts responding and it forces Me to Force Shutdown manually by holding the power button. I tried a new Browser (went from Firefox to Chrome) and still the same problem. I decided I want to upgrade to Windows 10, since I'm qualified to have it free, but whenever I try to install it, the "Checking for Updates" loading bar never finishes and if I try to close it or anything else, it'll freeze up all over again.

What should I do? I had to go into Safe Mode to be able to make an account here and type this up. I've already uninstalled some stuff, even though I barely have anything occupying a lot of space to begin with. I certainly didn't download anything malicious, as the day before it started lagging, it worked absolutely fine and haven't downloaded anything from then on.

Hard Disk Suddenly Shows 100GB More Free Space?

Sep 4, 2015

I've recently upgraded to windows 10 home version from windows 8.1 . My hard disk space before the upgrade was around 50GB. After the upgrade it was reduced to around 32 GB. I figured it was just because windows was storing some of the older files temporarily to allow for a rollback.

Today, i started my PC after it got shut down due to low power, the hard disk is suddenly showing 130 GB free space. All programs seem to be in place working fine. I just couldn't figure out where the additional space came from.

Drivers/Hardware :: Recover Unallocated Space On Data Disk

Nov 28, 2015

I installed Windows 10 on a new PC, with OS on Samsung 950 PRO. For data disk, at this stage, I use a Samsung 840 PRO which I transferred from my old 8.1 PC.

The data disk now shows in diskmanagment 351MB unallocated space, and 119 GB NTFS Healthy (Primary Partition).

How can I reclaim the 351MB unallocated to get maximum capacity of the data disk?

Maybe this a standard case of repartitioning, but I am not familiar with that and do not know how to do it.

Remove All Volumes Of Dynamic Disk And Convert It Back To Basic Disk And Format

Nov 5, 2015

I have a configuration where win 10 is installed on SSD but the Users folder is on a dynamic disk on HDD and the linking is made by a hard junction link from C: to D. I have removed paging on D as well as protection. Hence, I am able to remove all volumes of the dynamic disk and convert it back to a basic disk and format it.The problem is that I would like to keep all my installed programs (and settings, preferably). I have copied the Users directory to an external disk and copied them back to D after conversion. This seems to lead to a nonfunctional situation where I cannot even add a new user and most programs (even not all windows tools) do not work.What would be the best approach to avoid reinstalling the programs and to keep existing users?

No Boot Disk Has Been Detected Or Disk Has Failed

Aug 25, 2015

So, after about 2 weeks of experiencing Windows 10 I've decided to revert back to Windows 8.1, since I was more experienced at it. So I followed every step to downgrade the system, waited for about a few hours, then I noticed that when Windows restarted, it somehow went to an "automatic repair" loop. I've tried literally everything there was so I can get it running again, but nothing seems to work. But, there was only one option, in which I feel like an idiot to try out.

I went to Command Prompt and typed in diskpart.exe, then enter. I then typed in LIST DISK, then SELECT DISK SYSTEM, and finally CLEAN. Since I thought at the time that CLEAN works like resetting the PC, I rebooted it again, and I came to an error message saying: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed.Is, or will there be any other way to start my PC in a condition like this? If I'm missing any other details then feel free to ask.

Installation :: New PC Not Enough Space

Oct 25, 2015

Just bought a new laptop for my wife, it's an HP Stream 11. It is suitable for her light needs, basically web browsing and some light document work, word processing etc. She's not even going to store music or photos on there. A few very light files only. So it comes with 8.1 and I think, awesome, I can install 10 straight away (I've not used 10 yet so was quite excited by this).

However when trying to install it's telling me I'm about 2 gig short of enough space for 10. I have about 9 gig free and it wants about 11. The hard drive is 20 gig. I've installed Windows 8.1, removed a shedload of apps she doesn't need, removed some programs that she doesn't need (for example McAfee) and I'm at the stage where there's literally nothing on there but an 8.1 that is as barebones as I think I can make it. Looking at the programs installed, even if I removed Office and some HP crap, it will only get me another 500 MB. Is Windows 10 on this PC simply not possible?

Does it need the space just for the install process itself? Or on an ongoing basis? Because I have a hard drive I can plug in, in the short term, but she's not going to want it attached forever as it will be a little unwieldy for a laptop!

I, for one, am happy about this change, since those "Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB2267602" were clogging up the update history page.

Performance :: Want To Set Up Storage Space

Jan 15, 2016

Can the C: drive be part of a pool, having all drives (including the c: drive) look like 1 drive? If so, how do I do that? I created a storage space, but it made me set it up as drive D:, and I see no way to combine it with C:.

Next: I want to have the C:/boot drive be part of the redundancy equation. I plan to use Parity. I can see where it would be if all drives looked like 1, but I don't see how it would be if not part of the pool.
