HOW TO SECURITY UPDATE A 30G LAPTOP (INSUFFICIENT SPACE)? WIN10 RRS feed

  • Question

  •  My friend in the country has me looking at his computer via TeamViewer and first up I find it want security upgrades and complains it hasn't enough room.

    But he's got virtually no data on it at all.  i.e.  I can't remove his stuff and make room.

    It is all in the installation as per the factory.

    The only stuff I can find is MS Office which came with it and I don't know that it can be disentangled and the Recovery/customization directory which has about 8G maybe in there.

    And 8G is what the upgrade utility tells me is needed.  I don't know if it wants another 8G or if that's the total and the space already taken by the upgrade dir is included in that.

    But how to proceed?

    p.s.  what's going on with this 'choose a forum'  thing? i can't find a category to suit - there's nothing about updates etc - so i choose 'troubleshooting' and then it wants me to choose between 'tech companion for 8 and for phone' ? 

    forcing me where I don't want to go....    why?
