    Expand System Reserve Partition


    Have a HP - Windows 10 Desktop.
    It originally came with windows 7.
    It upgraded fine to Windows 10, but when the latest version
    was released, it is unable to update as the System Reserved Partition is only 128 MB.
    I am also not getting the latest security updates as I don't have the latest version of Windows.

    Is there an easy way to expand this Partition?

    Thanks for any insight!
