How to Update Windows 10 Without Enough Space

Updating to the latest version of Windows 10 is crucial to keep your PC running smoothly and securely. However, low storage space can cause issues during the update process. If you face this problem, you may receive an error message preventing you from updating to the latest version. This can affect your PC’s performance and stability. In this post, we’ll show you an advanced solution to avoid this error message and update to the latest version of Windows 10.

Before upgrading to the latest version, we recommend checking Microsoft’s minimum hardware requirements for their latest Windows 10 version 1903. If your PC meets the requirements, you can proceed with the update.

If you don’t have enough space to install important Windows updates, you’ll need to free up space manually. If you cannot free up space because your PC has lots of important data and is running very low on free space, you’ll need to increase the system drive space from another drive’s free space.

To create unallocated space from another drive free space, go to Windows Disk Management. Right-click on the drive from which you want to take space and then click on “Shrink.” Calculate the amount of space you want to shrink in MB format and click on “Shrink.” This will create unallocated space.

To extend this unallocated space with the system drive, you need to download a partition management software such as EaseUS Partition Master. After installing the software, move the unallocated space beside the system drive and then click on “OK.” Click on the “Execute Operation” button and then on “Apply” to save changes. This might take several minutes, so be patient.

After completing the process, restart your PC and run the “Defragment and Optimize Drives” utility from Windows Administrative Tools. Select all the drives and click on “Optimize All.” This step is highly recommended to optimize your hard disk and data.

Finally, check the system drive space from Windows Explorer. If the system drive space has increased, you can update your Windows 10 to the latest version. Your latest Windows 10 version 1903 is now ready to receive the latest quality updates.
