        Came across this article over on Windows Central that may be of use for those who wish to reclaim system storage space. This article seems to cover the conventional methods within the operating system that would be a good reference for users, if not just a reminder.

        ..And then comes Microsoft’s Windows 10 and grabs 7GB of the just released space, for nothing.

        Buy a bigger disk and a USB to SATA cable.
        Put the bigger disk in the PC. Use the old disk and the USB cable to backup the new disk.

        cheers, Paul

          I suppose you can’t do that with 32/64GB eMMC storage which usually suffer from lack of storage space.

            Linux would be my solution to that problem. 🙂
