Updating to Windows 8.1 - low disk space.

Recommended Posts

Howdy fellow internet travelers,

I'm interested in updating my Windows 8 to 8.1. However, when I download the update from the store and try to install it, it says I have not enough disk space.

My whole OS is placed on this tiny 64gb SSD drive, I've tried cleaning it up but I still lack the space to update to 8.1.

I'm quite scared to touch anything OS related, so I hope you might know how I can update to 8.1.

Thanks.

How much free space do you actually have then?



You could move pictures, videos etc onto another drive (if you have one of course), update and then move it all back.

I have 13GB free space, and evreything that's on it is windows related. My games, movies, pictures etc is stored on a different drive.

I read that the update makes a backup of your Windows, PerfLogs, Program Files, Program Files(x86) and Users folders, these are 40GB.

If the update stores the made backups on the SSD, then it would be impossible for me to update (simply not enough space).

For heavens sake - put a sock in it. The damned post is 6 years old.
