Not enough space to install a Windows update

Well, who doesn't loves update, everyone keens to be using their newly updated software for their working.

Another way to deal with this problem is auto-free up space on your hard drive or SSD. One way to do that is to use the built-in Disk Cleanup tool.

  • Click on the Start menu
  • Choose All Programs
  • Select Accessories, then System Tools
  • Click on Disk Cleanup
  • Under the Files to delete heading, choose which file types you want to remove
  • If you’re not sure about which file types to get rid of, select each one in turn and read its description
  • When you’ve selected the file types to delete, click OK
You can also free up space by manually archiving and removing large and old files and uninstalling applications, however, it will take much of your time.

Yeah space is cheap and Windows 10 has disk cleanup and now storage sense to help clean up your system. If you're really hurting for space use something like TreeSize or DirStat to locate large temp data.
