Windows 10: C Drive Full and SD Card Corrupting Files

    C Drive Full and SD Card Corrupting Files


    Hey,

    hope this is in the right place. So my C drive is literally full. No space whatsoever. I've attempted multiple times to clean it out, deleting folders, using software to clean out junk files, everything. I cannot delete anything in the C drive because it's system files and it won't let me delete anything at all. This wouldn't be a problem if my SD card wasn't corrupting everything.

    My laptop (SD card included) are empty. Everything was deleted and not by me. I tried another SD card that was brand new and still have the same problem. My word documents open blank and my download files say they're corrupted. However I can still open the SD card file and see what's on it, I just can't open the actual files. My C drive has 28GB that I only use for drawing software and word documents, but there's nothing on it but system files.

    I've been searching for weeks to try and find a solution and haven't yet found one. I'm on a surface pro, windows 10. I cannot download any updates because of the storage issue and the laptop is only 6 months old.

    Thanks,

    Eli

    Welcome to the forum. The only option is to get a new bigger hard drive or remove software. How big is the drive? If you upgraded to 10 is there a Windows.old folder which could be over 20 gig?
