  • When your spec says 128GB of space, that's the physical layout of the disk.  What happens when a disk is partitioned and formatted though is that there is a remaining "usable" space that you'll actually see.  Also, most modern operating systems will create hidden partitions when installed, to keep things like recovery tools and images available in case of emergency.  So you may be dealing with a remaining OS partition that is indeed only 100GB.  And of course that's also hosting your operating system...

    If you need more storage, certainly some kind of externally connected disk will work for you.  Does that PC also contain a MicroSD card slot?  I always find that adding a D: drive using a large MicroSD card helps quite a bit.

    Just a thought.  Best of luck.
