        I have an ASUS laptop and am unable to update Windows 10 because there is not enough space on Drive C:
        I have removed as much as I dare from Drive C: but fear deleting remaining files
        Drive C: = 114 GB free out of 118 GB
        Drive D: = 78 free out of 931 GB
        Can I move Office 365 installation files to Drive D: or will that disrupt their defaults and  functionality?
        How can I make room???

        Windows~BT can be deleted (but is usually quite small).

        My Scans can be moved to another drive.

        ?How big is your WINDOWS folder??

        114 gig free is WAY more than enough room.  Are you sure drive space is the problem?

          Susan B,

          My thoughts, exactly, but I wanted to be sure her WINDOWS folder was kosher (? should that be capitalized??).

        It may be a partition on the disk if full.
        Can you run Disk Manager and then post a screenshot?

        1. Win R, diskmgmt.msc, Enter
        2. Run Snip and Sketch (or Snipping Tool), take a window snip, save as PNG, upload.

        cheers, Paul
