Unable to install Windows 10 Updates Because of Insufficient Free Space

We have had a couple of customers contact us as they are unable to install Windows 10 updates because there is insufficient free space - they bought a computer with a hard drive too small. They can’t elect not to install Windows updates, as Windows 10 does not let you do this. They can’t install Windows 10 updates because the tablet/computer has a very small hard drive. So they are stuck in a Catch 22 situation. This has effectively rendered them unusable.

So please be careful when you buy Windows 10 tablets or computers that you have enough hard drive capacity – our minimum recommendation is a 256 GB SSD. Smaller may be cheaper, but you may live to regret it.
