    The best option it to do a clean install wipe all partitions and start fresh it will be quicker than messing about trying to get free space. Are you sure you don't have a windows.old folder as that can give enough space if remove

    If the drive is 32GB or smaller there have been issues with the last or last 2 Versions of Win10 having insufficient space and using a USB or SDHC memory device didn't help. Because of that my Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Notebook is now happily running Linux Mint 19.3.
