    Adding thumb drive for Win upgrade install

    I've removed as much memory I can from C drive and I have to install a thumb drive to add memory so I can install Win 10 upgrade. Says I'm lacking 8GB of memory. How do I add it? Aspire One Cloudbook 11 is the unit.

    You add a thumb drive to your system by plugging it in to a USB port.

    I understand that, but Windows doesn't recognize it as usable for an upgrade. Just as another source of files .... How do you make it integral with the Windows system? That's the problem I'm having.

    Windows does not recognize a USB drive as more storage for the C:\ drive. The USB is only to save files to and be able to remove from the PC, etc.
