Upgrading is frankly an advanced guru effort. On that tablet I have resigned myself that it much be pretty much clean of anything of mine for the big updates. This will be my last smaller Windows device. If I do this again I will not buy unless it's 64GB or larger storage.
About 8 months ago, I was gifted a 2014 HP Envy laptop which had gotten whacked by ransomeware and after lots of cleaning, I was able to restore it to "factory settings" which brought me to Win 8.1. I then proceeded to successfully upgrade it to Win 10.
I recently saw an article on c/net regarding the impending Win 10 Anniversary update and followed a link to manually facilitate its installation from MS. I clicked on it & it took me through a simple diagnostic which confirmed that my computer was in fact, able to run the update. So, I clicked on it & went to bed (noting that there was a message stating that I would take a while) When I woke, my computer was displaying a message stating that the upgrade failed, due to "low disc space" I looked at the reserved/recovery partition created by HP/MS? and saw that it was in fact, maxed out (approx 28 gb used out of 28.8 gb) I then attempted to expand the partition size but, to no avail. So, my question is this: how do I free up enough space on this reserved drive partition for the update? Or, is there a workaround where I can point the update to my unreserved (normal) storage space (of which I have plenty)
Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
