I think the ultimate solution for this, for all systems running 10, especially laptops with only one HDD, is simply create a small partition, maybe 10-20Gb and then set up a share for Networking. Then, you can just dump whatever you need there, and use any hand device's LAN browsing app (FileExplorer/ES Explorer) to move it elsewhere.

It's why I always get high capacity hand devices, most Androids allow a 32gb SDcard to be added. You'll note that those devices also strictly forbid you from dumping files into the root folders, even if you are rooted. But there is a nice "downloads" folder that shows up and you can put them there, then you can move them out using the same method and/or using the USB mounting option from said device.
